At Kegs ‘n’ Eggs

It was a cold and rainy day. An estimated 1,200 people showed at this year’s Kegs ‘n’ Eggs sponsored by the Kansas City Renaissance Festival in Bonner Springs. It was an Easter egg hunt for adults.

What happened is everyone got a bag to hold the plastic eggs in. It was a chance for an adult to be like a child again, eat from great food, have a cold beverage, and if you brought your dog, you could get something as well for him.

What a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon, outside enjoying fresh air and being with friends.
