GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- Saturday’s 5th annual Easter Eggstravaganza was no ordinary Easter egg hunt. What started as just a fun event for the Hartline family and friends, is now a local Easter weekend staple. For the last five years, Christy Hartline and a bunch of volunteers turn her yard into a festival accessible for kids of all abilities.

"This is one event they look forward to and that makes me feel good. That makes me feel like I'm doing something good," Hartline said.

As a mother to two children with special needs, she wanted to make sure kids of all ages and abilities to partake in the fun.

"I'm doing this all to support our special needs community to bring awareness that our kids are just like everyone else. They just do things in a different manner. We all have our own little quirks and here everyone gets to let their quirks fly," said added.

The Johnson family is just one of the many families that came to hang out with the community and snatch up some eggs in Easter egg hunt.

“It’s nice for the people who go and spend time with their family on Sunday so they still get to enjoy Easter egg hunts for their kids and stuff too. It's nice. It's beautiful out here," Kimberly Johnson said shortly after the Easter egg hunt ended.

Hartline is amazed that the community keeps coming back every year.

"It's just become a fantastic thing. And to see all the smiles on the kids' faces and their families makes it all worth it," Hartline added.

The annual Eggstravaganza is now a tradition Christy Hartline doesn't plan on stopping any time soon.
