Locals celebrate Easter traditions

BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. (WDTV)-- Easter is full of traditions and many of you are celebrating the holiday.

Whether you attend church services, visit with family, or hunt for Easter eggs, many of you said the day is extra special.

"We are going out for dinner and my mother and my father came into town, so we are spending it with them," said Jennifer Hineman.

"It's a good time to get together with family and spend some quality time," said Katherine Sheperd.

"It's a time of the year where it's spring and you know the weather is going to get warmer. A lot of people are out and you don't see a lot of people in the winter because they stay in," said Helen Pritchard.

"I came to the Bridgeport Conference Center and had dinner with the whole family. We do this every year. We are going to head over to our son's house with all of the grand-kids and we are going to spend the rest of the day with them," said Stephen Joyce-Miker.

"Easter means thank God the tomb is empty, so glad the tomb is empty," said Miker.
