(Newser) – First Colorado Springs, now this: An annual Easter egg hunt in central Georgia has been canceled after organizers say parents became violent while trying to collect eggs for themselves and their children in past years. This will be the first time in years that the Easter Bunny won't be visiting children during the annual egg hunt at Central City Park in Macon, traditionally one of the largest Easter events in central Georgia. The Bibb County commissioner says that liability concerns led to the cancellation. In past years, one woman was injured and several children were "trampled on," he notes.
