BLUEFIELD, Va -

Rain wasn't the only thing falling from the sky across the region March 24th, folks in Bluefield VA, saw thousands and thousands of Easter eggs!

Nearly 50,000 of the colorful treasures covered the Bluefield Recreation Park for the 2nd Annual Egg Drop and many of them were released from a helicopter.

The event was held by the Crosspointe Community Fellowship Church and was free to all who attended.

"They'll remember that when they were a kid they went to this Easter drop," said organizer Charity Cook. 

"They'll probably tell their kids and their kids."

Along with a larger then life egg hunt, there were many other activities for the children, free food and live entertainment.

Organizers said though this is the first year, they have already noticed an increase in participation and have high expectations for the future.
