It took the City of Glen Cove’s parks and recreation department nearly three hours to lay out 10,500 Easter eggs on the field at City Stadium in Glen Cove for the 14th annual Glen Cove Easter Egg Hunt. It took approximately three minutes for 250 children to collect all of the brightly colored eggs in a frenzy of fun.
Mayor Reggie Spinello and Parks and Recreation Director Darcy Belyea emceed this event that included free raffle tickets for large chocolate Easter bunnies donated by Henry’s. All 10,500 Easter eggs took senior volunteer Joe Rizza two and half weeks to stuff with little treats.
After the mayor did the final count down for the children to enter the field, Glen Cove’s own Easter Bunny (Donna Mariro) waved them in.
