(KNSI) - Kids will have their chance to nab their share of eggs during the 43rd Annual 104-7 KCLD Easter Egg Hunt.

Kids zero to 10 years old can take part in Saturday's free egg hunt at Riverside Park in Southeast St. Cloud.

KCLD's Derek Lee says you don't want to be late or you'll miss out.

"It's going to be starting at 11 a.m. sharp, and when I say sharp, it's 3-2-1, 11 a.m. and it's the craziest two and a half minutes that you've ever seen so, bring a bag for your Easter Eggs and get ready to have some fun."

Kids will compete for eggs with kids their own age. Derek says the event isn't a typical egg hunt.

"It's more like a dash. There's like 10,000 Easter Eggs and about five minutes before the thing happens, we walk out there with our box of eggs, some with prizes, some with candy, some with everything else - you never know what's in it!"

There's also a chance for mom and dad to win a $500 Coborn's gift card.

The Easter Bunny will he available for pictures starting at 10:15 a.m.

Remember that the Earth Day Run is the same weekend as the Easter Egg Hunt. The bridge by the Rivers Edge Convention Center will be closed on Saturday morning for the marathon.

The bridge at St. Cloud State University will be open but “coned off” for the runners, and it could take longer to get to the event.
