Another Town Forced To Cancel Easter Egg Hunt Due To Pushy, Violent Parents

Come on, parents, pull yourselves together and act decent for your kids, because this is getting ridiculous: Yet another town, this one in Georgia, is canceling an Easter Egg hunt over concerns that parents will get violent during the festivities.

The Easter Bunny’s visit to Macon’s Central City Park is usually one of the largest in the area, says the Macon Telegraph, but the hunt’s coordinator says he’s canceling it because “parents caused a situation in which some children got hurt.”

Even with different areas of the park set aside for various age groups, parents would still insist on tagging along with their kids, and incidents occurred where parents became violent while trying to get their kids the most eggs.

In the past, a woman was injured and several children were “trampled on.” For the love of Peeps, people! We’re ashamed of you.

Fortunately for the citizens of Macon, there are a few other options for a Sunday hunt. Just remember to behave yourselves out there and avoid trodding on children.
