They really came out of their shells!

Kids were hopping all over Shore Road Park during the annual Easter egg hunt on March 26. One parent said her kids had so much fun they’re already counting the days until the next search.

“Kids were super excited to pick their eggs, and we definitely had a fun time,” said mother-of-two Alexandra De Las Nueces. “We’re looking forward to going again next year.”

The Easter Bunny didn’t do too good of a job hiding eggs — so even the littlest hunters walked away with a bounty, De Las Nueces said.

“It was very fun for small children, and my daughters really enjoyed themselves,” said De Las Nueces.

The free event at the Shore Road Park playground, which state Sen. Marty Golden sponsored, also featured face painting, animal balloons, prizes, and even a dance party.

Egg hunters got to pose for photos with the Easter Bunny and take home a chocolate bunny or marshmallow eggs.
