HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) — Kids in Henderson hunted for candy canes like they would Easter eggs.
The Parks Department put about 10 thousand candy canes out for kids at the disc golf course in Atkinson Park.
Kids were divided up by age group and took off running when Santa said it was time to start.
Almost every candy cane was picked up in just minutes.
Organizers say that’s pretty normal.
“If it lasts two minutes, it lasted too long,” said Director of Parks and Recreation Trace Stevens. “Normally, these things don’t tend to last too long. We don’t hide the candy canes too well. We just lay them out and the kids come through like child vacum cleaners, they suck up all the candy canes off the ground.”
There were some special candy canes hidden and the person who found them got a special wrapped present.
