Easter Egg Hunt Goes High-Tech

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) – An Easter egg hunt has gone high-tech at a suburban Kansas City park.

Children used GPS devices to search for goodies Sunday in Johnson County’s Antioch Park. The Johnson County Park & Recreation District programmed the GPS devices, which were lent to participants in this year’s Easter egg hunt.

So many people registered for the event that a second round of searching was added after the first group had spent about an hour gathering eggs. Each child received two eggs, filled with candy or toys, at each of eight caches.

The GPS devices directed the hunters to within about 20 feet of a cache. Then children had to search for it.
