Tom Banman grabs a handful of plastic egg shells while holding son Gulliver, 2, during an Easter-egg stuffing gathering Friday at the Bainbridge Island Aquatic Center.

Banman said he had stuffed 30 eggs so far.

“If I had two hands, it would be double that,” he laughed.

Roughly 30 employees of the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District spent three hours filling eggs for the park district’s annual mEGGa Hunt.

With the help of volunteers from Bainbridge High’s National Honor Society, New Life Church and Island Time, they will have close to 10,000 eggs ready for this year’s mEGGa Hunt, which returns to Battle Point Park on Saturday, March 31.

The hunt starts at 9:30 a.m. for children up to 2 years old; followed by ages 3 to 5 at 10 a.m.; kindergarten through second grade at 10:30 a.m.; and grades three through five at 11 a.m.

The mEGGA Hunt will also feature live entertainment, games, face painting and more.

The free event is sponsored by CHI Franciscan Health.
