Prior to the hunt that began at 1 p.m. children were entertained with face painting and activities and of course visiting with the Easter Bunny.
The Lions seeded the field with 2,000 plastic eggs and countless foil wrapped chocolate eggs, miniature chocolates, m&ms and more. After each group completed their hunt, there was not a candy to be found.
Children who were lucky enough to find a foil egg marked with a sticker headed to the pavilion for a special prize.
Lions President Nick Bencivengo welcomed one young man in a wheelchair to participate, but he became overwhelmed by the crowd and couldn’t make himself enter the field. So two younger children, Amanda and Jacob kindly offered to collect some candy for him.
The Lions thank the parents for their good behavior and for following the rules this year.
