Jason Elmer and fellow Parks and Recreation workers scattered 8,000 plastic Easter eggs on the Civic Center grounds Saturday only to watch them disappear in a jiffy as youngsters snatched up every single one.

About 3,000 people enjoyed a pleasant spring day to participate in Prescott Valley's annual Eggstravaganza egg hunt and Family Arts Festival. School and recreation groups performed music, dance and drama, and the Bradshaw Mountain High School art students offered Arizona Centennial art for sale.

Inside the Civic Center, local students had their artwork displayed for the month of March.

Helen Dickerson, BMHS art teacher, said her students raised $551 to go towards the 2012 Fine Art Scholarship Fund.

"Art students will now be able to submit their portfolios and apply for the scholarship money," Dickerson said.

She co-chaired the event with Suzanne Duskey, chair of the PV Arts and Culture Commission.

The Commission had a table set up for children to participate in hands-on activities; other organizations such as the Prescott Valley Art Guild had tables offering make-and-take art projects.

A petting zoo and inflatable jumpies also were popular attractions for the children.
