A few hundred kids in the James Cayce Homes neighborhood enjoyed an Easter egg hunt.
The event held Saturday was started by resident Marilyn Greer three years ago.
"This is just something that I love to do. It's all about bringing joy to the community, bringing joy for the children," she said.
In addition to the egg hunt, Greer also had a job fair for adults and a voter registration table for residents.
"Cayce has gotten such a bad reputation sometimes and sometimes people are skeptical to bring their children outside, but I wanted at least one day, just one day for the kids to come out and have fun," Greer said.
Multiple officers with the Metro Nashville Police Department also volunteered by handing out food and drinks.
