Two thousand pounds of candy were up for grabs Sunday at Soldier Field, and hundreds of kids were there to snap it up.

They raced across the grass at Soldier Field, loading up their baskets and bags with candy.

Organizers say the annual Spring Eggstravaganza is the largest free candy grab in the city. The event also included a brunch, for those who didn't plan to fill up on candy.
