Saturday morning, April 9, brought quite a thrill to youngsters taking part in the 21st Annual Egg Hunt Spectacular from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Halifax Elementary School. Youth and Recreation Director Dick Steele welcomed all.
The cool, bright morning leant itself to outdoor festivities for this rain or shine event. Indoors in the Halifax Elementary School gymnasium, there was face painting, the ever-popular balloon man, Moonwalk, Jelly Beans Guess Jar, and Meet the Halifax Holiday Bunny!
Hot dogs, pizza, Gatorade, and water were served with coffee and hot chocolate supplied by Dunkin’ Donuts.
To give everyone an even chance, egg hunt times were listed according to grade with preschoolers beginning at noon, and grades progressing every 15 minutes through grades four and five. Helpful volunteers set up the egg hunting grounds between each group.
North Easton Savings Bank sponsored the event.
