As Easter Sunday approaches, the Easter Bunny has been making appearances at Easter egg hunts in Harford and Cecil counties, and several are planned for this Saturday, April 4.
One of the biggest egg hunts in the area will be in Tydings Park in Havre de Grace Saturday, and this year there will be a new egg hunt at Annie's Playground in Fallston, also on Saturday, followed by an egg drop from a helicopter to raise funds for playground repairs and maintenance.
Havre de Grace's annual Easter egg hunt is from noon to 2 p.m. for ages up to 11. It's free and open to the public. Kids will be able to visit with the Easter Bunny and take a photo, and parents should bring cameras.
The egg drop will get under way around noon, with each egg being sold for $10 and prizes ranging from gift certificates to a grand prize worth $500. All egg purchases are tax deductible. The event will also have public safety and police demonstrations and other fun activities.
A helicopter egg drop will be held at Riverside Community Church just outside Aberdeen, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. There will be the Easter bunny, candy, hot dogs and more. The event is free and open to the public. The church is at 625 Carsins Run Road off Route 22.
Restore Church in Perryville is sponsoring a free Easter egg hunt Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon at Perryville High School, 1696 Perryville Road in Perryville. This hunt, billed by the sponsors as "Maryland's biggest," has been rescheduled from March 28.
