Hop to it, kids
Egg hunts start promptly and are over faster than you can say “bunny hop,” so be sure to get there on time. Little ones should dress for the weather and wear shoes that will keep their feet dry, since the grass will probably be wet. And be sure to bring a basket in which to collect eggs and candy.
Egg hunts planned for Saturday, March 30, are:
Amity: 10 a.m. in Amity City Park, sponsored by the Amity Fire Department for children through age 8. The egg hunt will be divided into the age categories 0-2, 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8. There will be 50 dozen eggs per age group, each with five prize eggs.
