The 10th annual Annual Mega Easter Egg Hunt will be held at St. Mary’s Park on Saturday, April 4, beginning at 1 p.m. A big crowd is expected for this year’s event, which volunteers from across the metro area will help to run. Participants are invited to come enjoy games, face painting, and a hunt involving 15,000 Easter eggs, as well as entertainment and inspirational messages. Every student will leave with a free gift bag.
A number of community organizations will coordinate with the Parks and Recreation Department to host the event, including Graffiti 2 Community Ministries, A House on Beekman, Urban Harvest Ministries, BronxWorks, NYPD 40th Precinct, SoBro, NY City Serve, and World Vision. Many local businesses are supporting the event through sponsorships.
