More than 1,000 children and their families attended the 5th annual Easter egg hunt and fun day at Emmett Scott Park in Tyler on Friday.

The event was hosted by the Good Friday Committee, a volunteer group that seeks to better their community.

"We all grew up in this neighborhood, so we want to give back year after year," event organizer Ambra Phillips said.

An Easter egg hunt was held for children ages 1-12, and volunteers from various organizations cooked and served a free lunch to all the children. After the egg hunt, families were invited to stay to play at the park and enjoy free face painting and bounce houses.
