SAINT LAWRENCE, Pa. -

The sound of a fire truck's horn was the signal for the start of a mad dash for candy-filled Easter eggs in Berks County on Friday.

Hundreds of children gathered on the Saint Lawrence playground for the borough's annual egg hunt.

It wasn't long before all the colorful eggs were scooped up and opened for the sweet goodies inside.

The Easter Bunny was also on hand for last-minute hugs and photos with the children.
