YORKTOWN, N.Y.-Yorktown was hit with its fourth March nor’easter last Wednesday, casting doubt on the annual Easter Egg Hunt at Downing Park. By Saturday, however, all of the snow had melted and a sunny spring day with temperatures in the mid-40s provided community children with another egg-ceptional hunt.

The event is co-sponsored annually by the Yorktown Lions Club and Yorktown Parks and Recreation Department. The thousands of plastic Easter eggs coating the park were scooped up in a matter of seconds by determined children. Every child collecting an egg received a prize, while several lucky children found “grand prize” eggs, which netted them a basket full of goodies.
