Kids swarm at Easter egg hunt Photos and text by Jane Bachrach
It probably took less than ﬁve minutes for the hundreds of kids that descended on Sopris Park last Saturday morning to gather the thousands of eggs that covered the grass. For these kids, any Easter egg hunt on Sunday would have a lot to live up to. Judging by the joy and excitement written on the faces of the hunters and gatherers, the annual Easter egg hunt, organized by the Carbondale Recreation Department, was a huge success. Besides the hunt and the opening of each kid’s stash of goodie-ﬁlled eggs, the white Easter bunny that danced on stage and entertained kids beforehand and played “Easter Santa” afterwards added to the fun. Some of the kids included Mackayla Bryan (top left), Amy Garcia (pink ears), and Alex Brodhurst (admiring one of his new-found eggs).
