Record Number of Families Attend Annual Egg Hunt
Four-thousand eggs, 400 kids, and a bunch of candy.That was the scene this morning at Bangor Parks and Recreation’s annual Easter egg hunt. They changed locations and moved to Hayford Park this year.Organizers said more kids than ever came out for the event and the thousand of eggs were gone in about 5 minutes. The Parks and Rec department puts on the event each year to bring out the community for spring time. Recreation Programmer for Bangor’s Park and Recreation Department, Tim Baude, said “It’s totally 100% free. Kids come, people get to see each other, kids get to be with each other and learn a little bit about sharing too at times.”The kids searched for solid color eggs, 35 of those held a special prize.Participants walked away with every thing from chocolate bunnies to Easter baskets.
