Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nope! It's just thousands of Easter eggs falling from the sky.

Sunday, more than just rain fell from the sky as hundreds of families hunted for Easter eggs under the cloudy skies of Sand Springs.

The celebration was held as part of the Easter Sunday activities hosted by "The Church that Matters" at the the Clyde Boyd Middle School in Sand Springs.

During the event that makes us all wish we were kids again, two helicopters dropped more than 20,000 eggs filled with candy and prizes.

In a press release, the church said each year more than 1,200 people turn out for the event.
