BILLINGS - Eggs of every color could be found all over the Magic City Saturday.

Hundreds attended the annual Great Easter Eggstravaganza at the Billings Depot where it's all about families coming together.

The Billings Depot had a petting zoo, photo booth with the Easter Bunny and most importantly an Easter egg hunt for the event. Seven thousand eggs littered the floor and kids scrambled to collect them.

This is the first year the Family Tree Center hosted the event and organizers say it fits well with their mission.

"We're all about families and supporting families and building strong families," said Stacy Dreessen, Family Tree Center's executive director. "April is Child Abuse Prevention month and we've had events all month long: family-centered events, fun ways for families to do things together. And so this was a really good fit for us."

Some say Easter egg hunts are a family tradition.

"It's a good opportunity to spend time with the grandkids, quality time," said Lorrie Combs, a grandparent. "We like the Easter hunt. They like getting their face painted and jumping in the air, whatever you call those things."

"You get a lot of candy and it's really fun to hang out with your family," said Trey Christensen.

All proceeds from the event go to the Family Tree Center's programs, like parent workshops and in-home mentoring, to strengthen Billings families.
