The spirit of Easter was in full swing this weekend at Firemen’s Park where thousands packed in to participate in in the 17th annual Easter Egg Hunt put on by the Stamford Volunteer Firemen’s Association.
Four hundred pounds of chocolate were given away to kids who waited patiently in line to scramble for the eggs and fill their baskets.
The family friendly affair, which also featured lots of great food, a bouncy castle, face painting, a fish pond and colouring stations was enjoyed by everyone under perfect weather conditions.
Dave D’Orsay who is the booking agent for Firemen’s Park says the event is not only to bring everyone together but to “remind them what a beautiful park we have here.” D’Orsay the day’s event is the biggest of its kind drawing record breaking crowds that were estimated around the 10,000 mark.
The fun event which also saw Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati and MPP Kim Craitor announce money raissed to support several worthy causes including the city’s food bank, Project SHARE, and the Stamford Center Volunteer Firemen’s Association for maintaining the park.
