KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) - An estimated 100,000 plastic Easter Eggs filled with goodies were dropped from three helicopters hovering over First Baptist Church in Kettering.
Thousands of children gathered for the free egg drop at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday.
This is the third year the First Baptist Church has hosted the Easter Egg Drop.
Organizers said all the eggs and candy were donated by church members and Sunday School classes. In the weeks leading up to the egg drop, volunteers stuffed and taped all of the eggs.
"It is always great to see the anticipation and excitement in the kids faces," said Rev. Tony Blanchard, Pastor to Children and Families. "Our goal is for all children and their parents to see and understand the love of Christ in a safe and encouraging environment."
A Winter Storm Watch will take effect late Thursday night through late Friday night for most of the area.
