Easter Egg Hunt 2005
Mpg Movies [1][2][3]

Over 8,000 brightly colored Easter eggs dotted the Gary Depken Field for the Annual Easter Egg Hunt held on Saturday, March 19 at 10:00 a.m.

An estimated 300 Heights pre-schoolers (4-5) through third graders participated and about 200 adults watched the event on a sunny spring morning.

The field was set up into three sections. The three part egg hunt began with four to five year old children in pre-K lined up on the north side of the field by event organizers. Parents were chased away, leaving only the eager children with their empty Easter baskets.

Police Chief Michael Colaneri began a countdown, blew his whistle and quickly stepped away as the children ran across the field to collect as many eggs as they could.

Each plastic egg contained a piece of candy or toy, but a few eggs held a small treasure -- a "furry chick".

This sequence continued for K through 1st graders in the center section and second and third graders on the south section.

After the third heat, those children who had found the eggs with the "chick", could redeem it for a toy prize.

The Easter Bunny visited, handed out Easter candy and toys and was available for photo opportunities by delighted parents.

No one could recall when this event began, but many adults remember collecting eggs when they were youngsters.

Free tickets were distributed through the elementary schools and were also available at the Boro Clerk's office at 320 Boulevard.

This event was sponsored by the Mayor's Celebration Committee.

About 25 members of the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department with their equipment were on standby at Depken Field during the event.  ####
