Sun shines on families enjoying County Easter festivities

Families and friends hopped around the County Saturday for Easter fun and chocolate treasure hunts. The sunshine and warm temperatures were the most welcome treat following Thursday’s freezing rain, and Friday’s gloomy, overcast sky.

The first stop for many Saturday morning was at the Williams Family Wilhome farm just outside Bloomfield for the sixth annual Prince Edward Junior Farmers Easter Egg Hunt. Children met the Easter Bunny and Betsy the Cow and some cows and calves – just four days old.

Many continued and joined in with others attending Milford’s annual
festivities – including bonnet decorating at the library, a parade to the fairgrounds and another gigantic hunt for chocolate eggs.

This year, additional family fun included a visit by furry springtime friends visiting the Picton library and the first Great Big Easter Egg Hunt put on by the Sophiasburgh Recreation Committee in Northport.
