These kids had an egg-cellent time!

Hundreds of kids took off to hunt for colorful Easter eggs in Marine Park on April 8. One of the smaller youngsters stayed clear of the stampede of kids searching high and low for the brightly colored eggs, but still had a blast, and even managed to snag a few herself, said mom Jennifer Fox who helped her 17-month-old daughter.

“She got a few eggs. She had the most fun watching everybody run,” said Fox. “I was with her so she was able to keep up with me. We went to the part where there weren’t any kids running and that’s where we wound up finding all our eggs.”

The hunt, hosted by state Sen. Marty Golden (R–Marine Park), is a great event for all the kids who live in the neighborhood, said Fox.

“We appreciate that that’s something that goes on for the community,” she said.

And a group of three friends — who came ready with bunny ears atop their heads — had the most fun taking pictures with the real, fluffy-tailed deal, said another Marine Park mom.

“It was good, it’s just fun hanging out with the kids in general,” said Amy Suen. “They took some pictures with the bunny, so they really liked that.”
