Hundreds of people participated in the 2016 Easter Eggstravaganza coordinated by the Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (DFMWR) at Constitution Park at Fort McCoy.

The event included breakfast with the Easter Bunny at the Exchange food court; photos with the Easter Bunny; and crafts and activities that included face painting, foam crafts, Easter bag and plastic-egg decorating, and games.

Event attendees also participated in a parade from the Exchange to Constitution Park, which was followed by an Easter egg hunt.
