Well at least it's not WKRP dropping live turkeys.!
..on April 4 – at mid-day, Easter – that chick could actually see eggs fall from the sky at Viking Hall Civic Center in Bristol, Tenn.
Around noon, that’s when Highlands Fellowship will celebrate the largest “Easter Egg Drop” in the history of the Tennessee/Virginia Tri-Cities – just after the 10 a.m. worship service.
The Abingdon, Va.-based church has assembled prizes in eggs – some 25,000 plastic eggs, actually – and plan to drop them in a field at the civic center, using a helicopter, just after the Easter Sunday service.
“It’s about loving on our community,” said Deborah Whitt, the church’s assistant to the lead pastor, Jimmie Davidson. “We were sitting in a room and thinking, ‘How can we love on our community?’ ”
The church leaders wanted to be “outrageous,” Whitt said. “And we came up with this idea to drop eggs out of a helicopter.” Link
Sounds like fun!
