Sugar rush: Ridge kids make a mad dash for candy at annual Easter egg hunt

Treats galore: Evolved egg-hunting youngsters averse to candy had the chance to snatch up some other, non-sugary prizes.

This hunt was egg-cellent!

Ridge youngsters and their friends from around the borough convened at Shore Road Park on March 30 for a pre-Easter candy quest sponsored by state Sen. Marty Golden (R–Bay Ridge). One local mom trekked all the way from Park Slope to the 79th Street park, but said the annual Easter tradition was worth the trip.

“It was a very nice day,” said Corliss Bittar, who attended with her 8-year-old daughter, Emily.

When the kids weren’t running around grabbing the coral-colored, candy-filled eggs, they met the Easter Bunny, got their faces painted, danced to music, and played with personalized balloon animals.

One mom who took her tyke said that even though he was too young to take part in the mad dash for the eggs, he still had fun meeting the Bunny-in-Chief and enjoying the sunshine.

“We walked around, met the Easter Bunny,” said Lisa Stone, who brought her nearly 2-year-old son Christian to take part in the fun. “It was nice to be outside and enjoy the nice weather.”
