HIPPITY, HOPPITY, EASTER’S ON ITS WAY
Town of Tonawanda Youth, Parks & Recreation and Rotary Club of Kenmore are putting on their 35th Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 24. The event, which attracts about 500 children, will be held inside Lincoln Arena, located at 1200 Parker Boulevard. Activities will include face painting, balloon animals provided by Youth Engaged in Service (Y.E.S.) volunteers, up-close magic by Nick Presents Magic from 10am-12pm, coloring, and a chance to see the Easter bunny.
The egg hunt will take place between 11am and 12pm. Egg hunt areas will be separated by age. Families with children with visual impairments/special needs are welcome to join us in the DFK Pavilion for an egg hunt, thanks to the Sheridan Drive Lions Club. You are encouraged to bring your own bag or basket to collect eggs. There is a limit of five eggs per child.
Ken-Ton Closet will be on site collecting baby toiletries and gently-used children’s winter coats. Non-perishable food items will also be collected on-site to benefit our local food pantry. Ken-Ton Kiwanis will be present selling hot dogs, pop, and giant coloring books. The concessions stand will also be open. Rotary Club of Kenmore will be collecting donations and painting fingers for the Purple Pinkie Project to help eradicate Polio.
“A lot of people in our community come out for this event, it’s a great chance to see the Easter bunny and participate in some other fun activities as a family,” says Dan Crangle, Councilman and Chairman of the Youth, Parks and Recreation Committee.
This event, for Ken-Ton residents only, is free to attend and no registration is necessary. Though it is inside, it can be chilly so please come prepared with warm clothing! Parking can be tight for this event. Organizers ask that those participating please park in only designated parking areas in the lots along Parker or Decatur, or on side streets.
