LANSING, Mich. - Have you ever seen 5,000 plastic candy-filled Easter Eggs fall from a helicopter before? This Saturday, April 20th, you'll get your chance!

The Lansing Lugnuts will be holding an Easter Egg Helicopter Drop this Saturday: Gates open at 11 a.m., with the eggs falling from the sky at 12:00 noon onto Jackson Field, and all kids in attendance invited to gather as many eggs/candy as they can manage.

Afterward, the Lugnuts will play the Dayton Dragons, with first pitch scheduled for 1:05 p.m.

"This is such a great experience for families a day before Easter," said Lugnuts general manager Tyler Parsons, who will be among the egg-dropping brigade flying above in the helicopter.

Added Parsons, "Bring your kids, bring your kids' friends, and enjoy a Saturday afternoon you'll never forget."
