     It's that time of year again. kids all over america are getting out the easter baskets and hunting for eggs. Kentucky is not exception.  High Point Church hosted one of the biggest egg hunts in town but numbers weren't the goal.

     "We just love our community. We love kids and families and anything we can do to invest in our community, we love doing it. We're a very small church, so this is a very large outreach for us. We love doing it," says pastor Chris Logan.

     The event which took place at Whitaker Bank Ballpark, featured food, games and live music in addition to the main attraction.  The Lexington Legends were happy to pitch in for the cause.

     "We're really big in working with the community; getting the community out here. We love community events like this. It's all family friendly. It's great for our ballpark. Plus opening day is one week away, so we couldn't say no to 5,000 folks coming out here before that," says Lexington Legends Community Relations Director Sarah Piester.

     Kids who participated took home more than 30,000 candy filled eggs.
