Parks and Recreation Hosts Annual Easter Egg Hunt
Children and families searched for eggs and pet baby rabbits.
The rain didn’t stop the excited children of Coventry from finding lots of colored eggs at Saturday's Easter Egg Hunt at the Community Center.
The egg hunt began at 9 a.m. in seven ages groups for children ages 10 and under. The indoor obstacle course awaited the over 219 children that participated in the hunt. Eggs contained prizes, candy and special numbers where children could claim their treat at the prize table.
Program supervisor for the Coventry Parks and Recreation Department, Jason Licciardi, was very happy with the event despite the rainy day. “The parents were very cooperative. The kids were very well behaved. And we put out close to 3,000 eggs.”
Children also had the opportunity to hold and pet baby rabbits between three and eight weeks old courtesy of Ginny Ross and Paine Farm. As kids sat down in the penned area, Ross directed her Cantering Colts 4-H Club community service volunteers.
