Thousands of Easter Eggs Hidden in Rec Park

By Faith Jessie.
It's Easter weekend which explains why Binghamton's Recreation Park was taken over by children hunting for eggs on Saturday.

The Children's Charity of Greater Binghamton hosted it's fourth annual Easter Egg Hunt.

This year's city tradition featured over 12,000 eggs filled with candy. Hundreds of other eggs were filled with tickets that could be traded in for prizes like passes to Hapursville's Animal Adventure.

One of the biggest attractions to the event is that it is free and open to the community.

"Some people give donations, but this is actually a free event for everyone. All kids in the community are welcome, so it's us giving back to the community ," said Liz Bucci, Vice President of Children's Charity.

In addition to hunting for eggs, kids had the chance to take photos with the Easter Bunny, and catch a ride on the Recreation Park Carousel that opened up for the event.
