City Stadium in Glen Cove was a mob scene of tiny egg hunters on Thursday, April 17, as at least 100 kids scoured the fields and claimed more than 8,000 eggs in less than three minutes. The annual egg hunt attracted kids from ages 3 to 10, most of whom were prepared with baskets, bags and buckets for storing the candy-filled plastic eggs.
Prior to the event, Mayor Reginald Spinello thanked the crews for preparing the fields and Darcy Belyea, director of the parks and recreation department, for organizing the event. While waiting for the Easter Bunny to give the signal for the hunt to begin, the mayor asked the children if anyone wanted to say a few words. Several young ones stepped up to the microphone to wish the community a Happy Easter.
The egg hunt was followed by a raffle: three lucky kids won chocolate bunnies. The chocolates were provided by Henry’s.
