In Freedom, Easter's celebrated at every level – even in the mud!

Trenton Welty, Freedom, just goes right for the Easter eggs and jumps into the mud at the Freedom Mud Run Saturday.

In times gone by, I've heard it said that Easter celebrations – religious component aside – were all about wearing the fanciest bonnet to church.

What would those well-coiffed matrons have to say about Freedom's Easter celebrations?

Whatever they'd say, what they'd have seen Saturday was scores of kids slogging knee-deep through a vast pit of mud to find Easter eggs – and having a whale of a time.

The Muddy Easter Egg Hunt, for kids ages 10 and under, was the culmination of the 2019 Buzzard Rally mud run held that morning.
