“It’s well attended every year,” Boyle said. “I’m sure it’ll be a great time.”

Following the egg hunt, all little league and softball players should meet at 12:30 p.m. at St. Theresa’s church for the parade, which begins at 1 p.m. The parade will have at least 200 people, according to Boyle, and will wrap up at the Little League field, where the opening ceremony will take place.

Kenilworth resident John Filippone will throw out the first pitch in honor of his nephew, Daniel. Vanessa Sierra, a student at David Brearley High School, will sing the national anthem.

“I’m very excited for the event,” Boyle said. “We’re looking forward to it.”
