Members of the West Side Nut Club are busy preparing thousands of Easter eggs to distribute on April 3 during the Nut Club's Drive-Thru Easter event.
Usually, the West Side Nut Club hosts a massive Easter egg hunt at Mater Dei High School, but the COVID-19 pandemic shifted that tradition to a drive-thru event for 2021.
The Nut Club is stuffing about 54,000 plastic eggs with treats ranging from candy to money and tickets for other big prizes.
According to WSNC Easter Egg Hunt Chair 2021 Brandon Julian, each bag handed out during the event will contain 15 eggs. Some kids will be randomly selected to receive medium/large baskets, as well as stuffed animals, gift cards, and even cash. "There are ten $50 bills that will be included in the randomized eggs also," Julian said.
Children must be present to receive Easter eggs during the event. WSNC says the event is for kids in the 5th grade and below.
The event happens from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm on April 3 at the old Mead Johnson parking lot at the corner of St. Joe and the Lloyd Expressway.
Dozens of sponsors helped make the event possible.
