Despite chilly temps, annual event draws hundreds to Red Orchard Park

Though Saturday dawned cool and cloudy, the sound of children’s laughter at Red Orchard Park warmed the souls of those in attendance for Bunny Days.


Shelby County Parks and Recreation Director Shawn Pickens glanced around at the 200 children and adults who bundled up against chilly morning temperatures to hunt eggs and find prizes.

“We’re down a little from last year, because it’s so cool, but all in all, I think it’s going really well,” he said.

The children hunted plastic eggs with treats inside and then scurried inside for cookies and lemonade, bypassing the playground equipment in lieu of the warmth inside the barn.

The third annual event also included face painting and crafts and a live broadcast on Froggy Radio.
