More than 1,600 eggs were hidden across the lawn over the two events, including prize eggs that contained $20, $10 and $5.

Also taking place was the Lawrence County Developmental Disabilities accessible egg hunt, in its second year, at the county fairgrounds in Rome Township, while, in Chesapeake, Hometown Love hosted a hunt at Chesapeake High School.

And, back in Ironton, the Lawrence County Horseman’s Association hosted an egg hunt across from the ODOT garage, which also featured vendors, pony rides and other activities, while the Ironton Lions hosted their annual pancake breakfast with the Easter Bunny.
