BRIDGEPORT/MANSFIELD/BREWSER/PATEROS – The Easter Bunny is going to have to hop to it to make all the rounds of holiday celebrations between here, Mansfield, Pateros and Brewster between March 31 and April 1.
Mr. Bunny will need to be at Bridgeport at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 31, when activities get underway at Merryman Park and last until noon. Helping out the holiday rabbit will be the American Legion, Bridgeport Eagles, and Chamber of Commerce. While the youngsters are busy searching for hidden eggs, Mr. Bunny will hightail it for Mansfield where the Town at the End of the Rails begins its Easter festivities at 10 a.m. in Blue Stem Park. Joining forces to help make that event happen are the Mansfield Lions Club, Sportsman Club, and Dale Mills.
If last year was any indicator, the Brewster Boys and Girls Club will draw the largest crowd of all as more than 100 youngsters gather in the field across from the BBGC building. Director Brian Paine and his helpers will have hundreds of eggs hidden in the grass in areas sectioned off by age groups.
Youngsters who arrive early Saturday morning, March 31, can get photos taken with the Easter Bunny at 9 a.m. before the egg hunt begins at 10 a.m.
Jeanette Palmer and Howard’s on the River is again sponsoring the Easter celebration in Pateros on Sunday, April 1. The egg hunt gets underway at 10 a.m. in Pateros City Park. Three age groups will each have their own designated areas, so everyone can have a fair chance to find a prize. Section One will be for ages 0-4 years, Section Two, 5-7 years, and Section Three 8-10 years.
