NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The 13th annual Easter egg hunt in North Nashville brought hundreds of kids out to celebrate the holiday Sunday afternoon.

The neighborhood event is held in the 1500 block of 16th Avenue North.

Sam “Sambo” Brown holds the event every year as a way to give children in need an Easter they will remember.

In addition to some 3,000 eggs hidden for the event, bicycles and toys were given away to dozens of children.

An estimated 400 kids took part this year.

“A whole lot of kids don’t have [anything],” said Brown. “If you make one kid happy, you’ve done something.”

Brown raises money from sponsors and local biker clubs to pay for the event. He also puts up some of his own money for the cause.

The egg hunt has gotten larger every year since it started 13 years ago. Brown said he will keep hosting the event as long as he is around.
