It's almost time for the Easter Bunny to make his annual trek through East Haven, filling the baskets of good boys and girls throughout town.
And the East Haven Rotary Club is ready to help the community celebrate with a full morning of activities just before the famous rabbit makes his much-anticipated visit this year.
Easter Bunny Breakfast
The Rotary will be hosting its 3rd Annual “Breakfast with The Easter Bunny” on Saturday, from 8:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m., at the East Haven Senior Center.
The breakfast will include: pancakes and sausage along with juice and coffee. The event will be similar to the club’s popular “Breakfast with Santa," which is held each year during the Christmas season, event organizers said.
The Easter Bunny will be greeting every child and giving each a special Easter treat. Children 8 years of age and younger will be admitted free.
Admission for adults and children over 8 will be $ 5 per person, with all proceeds going to the East Haven Rotary Club High School Scholarship Fund.
This year Amber Alert Child Identification cards will be offered and parents/guardians will be able to purchase a professional photograph of their child with the Easter Bunny.
Other activities will include: Easter egg decorating, making bunny puppets and a fishing pond with prizes for $1 per try.
Easter Egg Hunt
Following the Rotary event, the East Haven Park and Recreation Department, under the direction of Lou Pane, will be holding its annual outdoor Easter Egg Hunt.
This will take place beginning at 11 a.m. at the tennis courts on Hudson Street, next to the “Patsy” DiLungo Ice Rink. The Easter Egg Hunt will be free of charge.
