Of course, there was egg-citement was in the air!
Hundreds of pastel-clad youngsters brought their game faces to a fierce Easter egg hunt in Fort Greene Park on Saturday, according to one dad who witnessed the action.
“There was a lot of competition and everybody was hustling,” said Sean Moore, whose four-year-old twins Cameron and Corey found five eggs.
But kids didn’t have to look hard for the colorful bounty — the bunny “hid” 2,000 pieces of the treasure by just laying them down on the greenspace’s grass and beneath its trees, making it easy for the kids to collect their loot.
“They were basically right there where you could see them,” Moore said.
It is unclear why the Easter Bunny — a magical creature who hides eggs once a year — didn’t quite do his job, and, as usual, he could not be reached for comment.
Along with the egg-travaganza, kids colored, creating crafts, and were visited by furry face of the spring holiday, an appearance that made at least one little guy’s day.
“The bunny was so much fun,” said Alexis Southerland Anekwe, who brought her one-year-old son Amari and husband. “It was his first time seeing the Easter Bunny and he loved it.”
