Sacramento, Calif., tried to set a world record for the largest Easter egg hunt ever on Saturday.

However, the event's organizers failed -- and in more ways than one, Sacramento's KMOX-TV reported.

First off, they put down 500,000 eggs around the state Capitol.

While that is a lot, it was not enough to set a world record.

And second, the whole thing turned into utter chaos. There was no organization, so the bigger kids started trampling the little kids for eggs.

Then, the parents got involved and started trampling everyone to get eggs for their own children.

Kids were crying and getting hurt, and parents were pushing and swearing at them and each other.

Maybe next year, Sacramento.
