PARADISE, Calif. - Hundreds of Camp Fire survivors rang in Easter with a celebration at Bille Park in Paradise.

The event aimed to bring survivors together -- some who have not seen each other since before the fire struck.

They celebrated with hambugers, hot dogs and a pot luck. The highlight for the kids was the Easter basket giveaway with more than 900 baskets.

Stephen Murray said, "This is just huge to have a community come together cuz werre all here to support one another and just enjoy  the sunshine."

He talked about Bille Park in Paradise, perched along the edge of Butte Creek Canyon, and said many families gathered there all through their lives for celebrations and events.

Murray has been working hard to help provide fire survivors with gas cards, food and clothing. On Easter he and his family celebrated  renewal with the wider community out in the shade in "the company of friends."

One of the highlights of the afternoon was the massive egg gunt. It was a free for all with more than 10,000 eggs up for grabs.

The Easter celebration was produced by Murray, along with Ashlynn Pride and Paradise Fire Adopt a Family.

It is used by people who are seeking assistance and those who are providing help for the survivors. there are currently close to 32,500 members who have joined the Facebook group.
