WESTON, W.Va. – The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum held it’s 15th Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday.

This year, the Easter egg hunt had 14,000 Easter eggs with about 400 children in attendance. There were four designated areas for children ages, 0-2, 3-6, 7-10, and an area for special needs children.

“I want to thank everybody for coming out today it warms our hearts that so many people in the community can join us for Easter,” said Rebecca Jordan-Gleason, Operations Manager at Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum.
