An egg hunt for a special cause

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - It was a fun-filled morning at the Biloxi Town Green as children and young adults with physical and mental challenges went on an Easter egg hunt.

There was also face painting, dancing and even a little friendly corn hole competition. The morning ended with a free picnic lunch.

The event was sponsored by North Bay Civitan Club of D'Iberville-St. Martin, Biloxi-Edgewater Civitan Club and the City of Biloxi.
