Mayor “Lady” Myra L. Taylor, The City of Opa-locka Commission and the Parks & Recreation Department, in partnership with Kazah Temple #149 PHA Shriners, sponsored the Annual Easter Egg Hunt from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM in Ingram Park, 2100 Burlington Street in Opalocka, FL on Saturday, April 7, 2012.
Among the treats provided on this family fun day, was entertainment by Vance Stringer (D&E Party Suppliers Disco Entertainers), games, food, a raffle and a park filled with over 400 eggs for community children to locate, as they competed to fill their baskets, bags and cartons.

It was almost too difficult for the five judges from the Kazah Temple #149 PHA Shriners to choose with ease three winning hats. However, after much scoring and discussion, they calculated the numbers and eventually narrowed the winners to Sadie Jones (third place), Nemesia Rodriquez (second place) and Ethel Dame
