NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ — What do dyed eggs have to do with Easter?

In some Christian sects, red symbolizes the blood of Jesus. But, more than anything, hunting for the colorful eggs is a longstanding and fun tradition—and one the kids can soon enjoy in New Brunswick.

The city’s recreation department plans to host an Easter egg hunt at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 1 in Buccleuch Park. Children of all ages are welcome to take part in the fun at no cost.

The event will include just one wave of searching, according to the city. Officials recommend participants arrive on time, as the contest is first come, first served.

The Easter Bunny is also scheduled to make an appearance.

If it should rain, the egg hunt will be moved to the following Saturday, April 8.
