'Unruly' parents force cancellation of Easter egg hunt in Chester County

A Chester County town is pre-emptively canceling this year's Easter egg hunt over concerns that parents will continue their "unruly" behavior from previous years.

The Norco Fire Company in North Coventry Township announced the decision in a Facebook post earlier this month.

This isn't the first time parents have ruined the Easter holiday for their children over candy they could obtain at a very low cost and with significantly less effort.

Last year, a Connecticut Easter egg hunt sponsored by PEZ went awry when parents decided to bum-rush three fields strewn with about 9,000 eggs. Some people had the audacity to blame PEZ for poorly organizing the event, but the end result was terrified and disappointed children, no matter who was at fault.

Here's a look at what happened in Connecticut.
