CLARK, NJ - Easter egg-citement filled the air as more than 600 children joined the Easter Bunny at the Clark Municipal Building on Saturday afternoon for the 11th annual Easter egg hunt sponsored by the Clark Recreation Department.

Along with four egg hunts for kids ranging from toddlers through fifth grade, the event featured games, face painting, a coloring contest, a jelly bean guessing contest, and of course, pictures with the Easter Bunny, played by Karen Bernardo. The children also painted flower pots and decorated sand pails to use for gathering eggs.

“The egg hunt is just another thing we’re happy to do for the Township of Clark,” said Recreation Director Ralph Bernardo. “There’s something for everybody—prizes, baskets, candy and crafts. Nobody goes home empty-handed.”

Refreshments were donated by Vaccaro’s Bakery and ShopRite, while other members of the Clark business community and service organizations funded the purchase of the prizes. For the first time, in addition to several bicycles, top prizes included two American Girl dolls. Among the other prizes were oversized stuffed animals and dozens of baskets brimming with toys, books and candy.

Clark parent Jessie Hoff, attending the hunt with her three children, said, “We come every year. It’s incredible. There’s something for every child, every age—and it’s free. You can’t beat that!”

Students from Arthur L. Johnson High School volunteered their time to set up the event, serve refreshments, oversee the games and crafts, paint little faces and help manage the egg hunts.
