MARTIN – Martin City Tourism teamed up with the Martin Fire Department and Martin Mayor Samuel Howell to host “Easter Eggstravaganza” over the weekend. The event was held at the baseball field located across from Saint Joseph Hospital on Saturday. The Egg Hunt featured five age groups: 0-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12 and special needs school-age children. Three large bounce houses were also available during the event.
“Each age group had two golden prize eggs to be found,” said Sharon Caudill, of Martin Tourism. “Prizes were cash and every egg was filled with candy.”
A live gospel sing was held after the egg hunt starting at 2 p.m. Entertainment included The Moore Family and Cassidy Clatworthy.
“The City of Martin has become a ghost town,” said Lori Tackett of Cracker Bottom. “Businesses have left leaving a void in the community. Our family and friends still live in this community and fun events like today foster pride in the community. We have had a great time.”
