'Eggcellent' Time

The city of Socorro hosted its annual city-wide Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday at Sedillo Park. Area businesses donated more than 100 baskets to be given away as additional prizes during the annual event.  Above, Julio Herrera, 8, of Socorro, was fortunate to have his photograph taken with the Easter Bunny at the event.
