Thousands of people came to the Ranch Rider’s 25th annual Easter Egg Hunt.

The event was at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds in Davenport, on Saturday, March 30. At the egg hunt, 30,000 eggs were up for grabs. Children also enjoyed face painting and bounce houses.

A member of the Ranch Riders Motorcycle Brotherhood said the event takes three to four months to prepare for.

In honor of the event’s 25th anniversary, 25 bicycles were given away and the grand prizes were two mini motorcycles.

Donations given by participants as admission will go to the Children’s Therapy Center of the Quad Cities.

Last year, the Ranch Rider’s egg hunt raised over $10,000 for the therapy center.
