Pez Easter egg hunt turns bloody as greedy parents rush in ‘like locusts’ and steal all the candy
An Easter egg hunt hosted by Pez turned into a shoving match on Saturday when greedy parents “rushed the field” and allegedly left some children hurt.
According to WFSB, Pez officials placed over 9,000 eggs on three different fields, and had planned to stagger the starting times for the hunts at the Pez Visitor Center in Orange, Connecticut.
“When it came time at like 10:30 a.m., the parents just bum-rushed that area,” parent Nicole Welch told the station.
“Shame on that parent that broke the little boy’s bucket causing him to lose the few eggs he had, that someone else then picked up,” mother Lisa Stahl notedon the Pez Facebook page. “Shame on the person that bloodied another child’s nose and to those of you that hogged all the eggs for your own kids.”
“If anyone is to blame for what happened today it’s the parents who tore down the signs and those that encouraged the kids to go from field to field instead of staying in their designated area,” she added.
