Children of all ages participate in unique Houston Co. Easter event

KINSEY, Ala. (WDHN) —The Easter holiday is right around the corner and several communities are getting into the holiday spirit.

The town of Kinsey here in Houston County held its 4th Annual Easter Egg Drop on Saturday morning.

The event put on by the town welcomed kids from across the town and surrounding area with their families.

Children were split into two different age groups and then a fire truck from Headland raised its latter high up in the sky, where a firefighter stepped out with a sack full of Easter eggs and let the eggs fly for the children to run and grab a few sweet treats to take back to their homes.

“It doesn’t last very long, but kids seem to enjoy it,” Mayor of Kinsey, Jason Reneau said. “It means a lot to the town in that it brings all the kids and families out together and it lets everyone know that the town cares for them and we try to present them with a good time.”

After the eggs were dropped, the kids got to get their picture made with the Easter Bunny.

Mayor Reneau would like to thank everyone who made this year’s event possible. This includes town first responders, the town council, and Headland Fire for providing the ladder truck.
