TCU alumni and members of the Fort Worth community kicked off the Easter festivities early this year in front of Sadler Hall.

The 22nd annual Easter Egg Hunt and Alumni Family Picnic was hosted by the TCU Alumni Association on Sunday.

The event invited families to participate in balloon art, pictures with Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny and an Easter egg hunt that lasted a total of five minutes.

Children ran through the lawns and collected as many eggs as they could find. Some were lucky enough to find golden eggs that could be turned in for prizes.

Each egg hunt was separated by age group to give all children a fair chance at collecting eggs.

“My best part was that I never stopped collecting eggs,” said Tyler Shuman son of TCU Alumna Brooke Shuman

Although the children had fun, the picnic was also a time for TCU alumni to visit and reconnect with their old college friends.

We’ve been coming [to the egg hunt] for a few years now,” said TCU Alumna Brooke Shuman. “It’s a great time to see old friends and their families and have our kid see the campus.

Families stayed around after the egg hunt to enjoy the sunny weather and good company.

By the end of the event, TCU Alumni and their families left with happy smiles and full baskets.
