Totally disappointed. Unorganized had children lined up for an hour with nothing to do,which is a real issue for small kids. Saw no one receive any goody bags which they said would be for the first 500 kids and lastly I saw numerous kids crying since their clearly were not enough eggs for all the children to collect. Overall fail...
