"I'm a dog lover myself and I enjoy watching this event," said Adam Vasquez, recreation supervisor for the Wood Dale Park District, which organized the event. "It also highlights our fine dog park we have here at the Cabin Nature Center."

The eggs were filled thanks to the generosity of K-9 Hair Design, a Wood Dale dog grooming business.

"It's great to see all these dogs," said Nancy Desmedt, owner of K-9 Hair Design.

Debora Oliveira of Itasca and her Golden Retriever, Donovan, wove their way through a lane of inquisitive dogs to fill a bag with dog treats during the first Easter egg race.

"This is a lot crazier than I thought it would be, in a good way though," she said. "I've never been to anything like this."
