Broome's Largest Egg Hunt Draws Out Over 1,500

Posted: Updated:

Saturday's sunny skies and dry weather proved to be the perfect day for outdoor Easter egg hunts.

Over 1,500 people people from toddlers to grandmothers turned out at Recreation Park for the Children's Charity of Greater Binghamton's 6th annual Easter egg hunt.

With some 20,000 eggs, the free event is billed as the largest Easter egg hunt in Broome County.

Within minutes after the hunt kicked off, kids could be seen tearing apart the eggs to see what treats lie inside -- candy (always a hit) or tickets that could be exchanged for prizes.

After all the eggs had been grabbed up, the party did not end.

Families could join in on a dance party, grab some hot chocolate and food and take a twirl in the Recreation Park Carousel, which saw about 700 visitors by 11 a.m. 

Mirabito Convenience Stores sponsored the event. 

The  Children's Charity of Greater Binghamton was formed to help improve the lives of kids in the Greater Binghamton area.
