The Easter Eggstravaganza is a time-honored tradition here in the Village where children between the ages of 1 and 10 hunt on our ball fields for candy and toy filled eggs. A lucky few will receive eggs with golden tickets inside which they will be able to redeem for prize filled Easter baskets. The event begins this year at 5:30 pm on Thursday, April 9, 2020. In addition to the egg hunt, there will also be a petting zoo, face painting, inflatables, food, and photo opportunity with the Easter Bunny!
