NORWICH – More than 4,000 Easter eggs will be scattered across East and West Parks in downtown Norwich this weekend, hidden in brush and grass, and just waiting to be found by local kids during the annual Kids’ Easter Egg Hunt.
The Maydole Hose Company of the Norwich Fire Department, in collaboration with the Norwich Business Improvement District and the Norwich Merchants Association, will kick-off the event at 10 a.m. Saturday in West Park for children up to age 4, and at 10:15 a.m. in East Park for children ages 5 to 8.
Children must accompanied by an adult and bring their own basket to gather their findings.
“Every year we’ve done this and it’s been a great success,” said Pat Ford, president of the volunteer Maydole Hose Company. “The kids love it. We get hundreds and it looks like we’re going to have some good weather this year, so I think we’ll have a bigger turnout.”
