"Eggstravaganza" Not Scrambled by Weather

The Easter Bunny hopped through the "Spring Eggstravaganza" in the person of Buckinghamster Jackie Hernandez, the third Hernandez sister to don the suit. (Click to enlarge the image.)

The weather held Saturday for the Lubber Run Center's annual “Spring Eggstravanza.” The event, 20-odd years and running, included pony rides, moon bounce, face painting, and a petting zoo, for a $5 per child fee.

The county pays for the eggs and candy, the fee covers the zoo and pony rides.

“That has [the pony rides and zoo] become such a big draw,” said Carol Hoover, a parks and recreation administrator for the county. “People don’t seem to mind” the fee.

A highlight of the event is the Easter Egg hunt. With more eggs than last year, the hunt was moved to Lubber Run Park itself.

Organizers hoped this would give the littlest children a better chance at getting eggs. Five golden eggs were hidden with the others. The children who found them, got special prizes provided by the Buckingham Community Civic Association.
