DALLAS -- Easter egg hunts are part of the joy of being a kid but for some, finding the eggs requires using different senses. That's what Thursday's Easter egg hunt at White Rock Lake was all about.
Dozens of blind and hearing impaired children were treated to an Easter egg hunt at Flag Pole Hill.
Dallas Council of AT&T Pioneers member Sonya Tucker was one of the volunteers at the event, "We had the firetruck set off the siren, we had eggs set out in pods with a beeping Easter egg. These eggs are set up to make a high pitch sound so that the kids who can't hear as well as others can find the eggs and find the candy."
This is the 25th year the Beeping Easter Egg Hunt has been held in conjunction with Dallas ISD. Based on the smiles on the kids’ faces, it was a time many of these kids will never forget.
In the end, it wasn't the sound of beeping but the sound of joy that rang loudest on Flag Pole Hill.
Tucker says it’s all worth it to see the happiness it brings to each family, "The parents tell us every year how much they appreciate it because their children can't do this on regular Easter egg hunts somewhere, so this makes them feel just as special as anybody else.”
