Despite plummeting Covid numbers and disappearing mask mandates, Mayor Michael McCabe of Westfield, Mass, has announced that this year's Easter egg hunt will be drive through for the second straight year.
The 28th annual Mayor’s Easter Egg Hunt has been scheduled for 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 9, at Westfield High School.
Below is a video of a happier time (one that many other cities will be enjoying this year.
Children ages 1-10 and their families will follow the trail to spy Easter eggs colored by the city’s school children, while tuning into to a special “Bunny Hop” radio station for a sing along. Local celebrities like the Bomber Bird, Tech Tiger and the Easter Bunny will be there to share a goodie bag with each child. Donations of non-perishable food items will be collected to benefit the Westfield Food Pantry.
An outdoor event that the city still feels can't be held safely? We're scratching our heads.
