Bluefield, Virginia- Springtime officially was kicked off last weekend when the women's soccer team at Bluefield hosted its first-ever Spring Easter Carnival on Saturday, March 31st for local children, families and fans of Bluefield Soccer.
The Easter Carnival was started by Head Coach Samantha Snow as a reason to help give back to the local community and introduce new fans and interest to the game of women's soccer.
The event took place in the front lawn at the corner of Bluefield's campus as hundreds of local residents joined in on the fun-filled afternoon alongside the women's soccer team.
Over 3,000 eggs covered the landscape of the campus field for the infamous Easter egg hunt that took place in the morning.
Most of the Easter Eggs were donated by family and friends and the concessions were donated from Bluesprings Youth Soccer Association in Loganville, GA.
The women’s soccer team hid all of the eggs and made sno-cones, nachos, played soccer with the kids and painted faces. The women's team was also assisted by members of the men’s basketball, men's soccer and football teams during the days' activities.
Not only was one of the biggest hits of the day the different large, inflatable games taking up a majority of the area, but also the involvement of college-aged athletes interacting with the young children. A great experience for all those who were involved.
The carnival celebration put on by Coach Snow's program will look to be an annual event in the Spring.
