HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – From generation to generation, the Easter Egg Hunt has retained its popularity. Especially since the Easter Bunny was made to feel welcome under the Easter sunny sky.
Hundreds of children filled Holyoke Heritage Park on Saturday hunting for eggs courtesy of the city’s Parks and Recreation Department along with Mayor Alex Morse.
Children of all ages egged on by their elders who were once their age.
Annmarie Fay of Westfield told 22News, “Well I’ve been to a lot of Easter Egg Hunts. Holyoke’s has to be the best one I’ve known. It’s a tradition for me and the kids every year.”
“When I was a little girl my father was actually a Holyoke firefighter. He passed away and we used to come here every year when we were kids, so I figured it would be a tradition for me and my kids.”
“This is actually the first time, but the reason my kid I want to bring him here I think it’s a beautiful activity, It’s a beautiful day and I thank the city of Holyoke,” said Ricardo Ayala of Holyoke.
Knowing how popular their event has become Mayor Morse and his parks and recreation team made certain there were plenty eggs for every child.
