Published 8:00 am Monday, April 14, 2014

The 14th annual Easter Eggstravaganza took place on Saturday at Beckwith Park in downtown Dowagiac. Hundreds of local children and parents attended the event, which was capped off by the annual Easter egg hunt at noon. More than 4,000 eggs and 8,000 pieces of candy were collected by eager children in less than five minutes. The warm weather helped draw in the largest crowd seen in recent history, event organizers said. (Leader photos/TED YOAKUM)
