WINONA, Minn. -

The weather didn't stop children from participating in an Easter Egg Hunt Sunday in Winona, but the event did have to move indoors.

Students at Saint Mary's University (SMU) held the school's first egg hunt for children in the community. The event was free to attend and featured several games and coloring stations as well for the kids.

Local businesses helped pay for the event, but SMU students did all the planning.

"It's just a way for us to give back to the community as well and to allow students the opportunity to interact with the community a little bit more," said St. Mary’s University student Julianne Bartosz.
