It’s the hoppiest time of the year Strawberry Hill Park hosts annual Egg-stravaganza! Dozens of families turned out for the annual Easter egg hunt at Strawberry Hill Park Saturday, April 19. In addition to the egg hunting, children enjoyed chalk drawing, face painting, a live animal exhibit by the 4-H club and they even got a chance to meet the Easter Bunny himself. It rained a bit, and the actual hunt at 11 a.m. was a little soggier than most would have liked, but the weather did nothing to damper the spirits of the egg seekers themselves who quickly set upon their designated hunting areas and recovered all the goodies with lightninglike speed. At right, Frankie Rohan, 2, gives the Easter Bunny a big hug. Below left, one young egg hunter seems to be contemplating his plan of attack just prior to the start of the egg hunt. And below right, the race is on as kids set about finding and gathering up all the eggs and candy in a festive frenzy. Photos by Luciano Marano | Bainbridge Island Review

One of the suspects is believed to be a serial burglar, Hamner said. He is described as 30 to 40 years old and 5-foot-7. He is about 140 pounds with dark colored hair and a dark complexion, Hamner said. He could possibly be Hispanic or Native American.
