BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - We're in the final countdown to one of West Michigan's largest easter egg hunts.
On Saturday, thousands of people in Battle Creek will scour the fields behind Victory Life Church in Battle Creek.
The church doubled the number of eggs in this year's hunt, stuffing a whopping 54,000 eggs with candy.
Some eggs also have tokens hidden in them for prizes.
The hunt is geared toward kids age 2 to 10, and is divided by age group.
The church says they wanted to do something big and fantastic for the community in celebration of Easter, and have not been able to find a bigger hunt than this one in Michigan.
Organizers ask that each family donate $3 to benefit the Haven of Rest, a local homeless shelter.
Registration began at 9:00 a.m. at Victory Life Church in Battle Creek.
