TICONDEROGA - The Easter Bunny is expected to make an appearance for the annual Ticonderoga Easter egg hunt.
Sponsored by the Kiwanis of Ticonderoga it will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 11, at Percy Thompson Bicentennial Park in downtown Ticonderoga.
All local youngsters, 10 and younger, are invited to participate in four flights tiered by ages. As always, all the candy and other goodies in the hunt will be likely to have vanished by 10:10 a.m., making promptness both a virtue and a necessity.
In the event of bad weather, the Easter egg hunt will be moved to the Ticonderoga Community Center (the former armory) on Champlain Avenue.
"The plan is to have the Easter egg hunt in the park," explained Rolly Allen, event chairman. "If the weather is bad, really awful, the armory will be our fall back location."
The location of the Easter egg hunt has been moved downtown from its former venue at the Ticonderoga Middle School in order to coordinate with the town's effort to refocus on the economic vitality of downtown Ticonderoga and to be closer to the Ticonderoga Main Street Partnership's Spring Fling, to be held at the Community Building immediately after the Easter egg hunt.
The TMSP event will be for pre-school through third grade children and will allow participants to make sun catchers, construct Easter rabbits, make bunny ears and have photos taken with the Easter Bunny.
The Easter Bunny, official sponsor of Ticonderoga Easter activities, has guaranteed an appearance at both the Easter egg hunt and the Spring Fling.
People seeking additional information from Kiwanis are invited to call Allen at 543-8822.
Further information on the Spring Fling can be had from Kristi Mars, the Ticonderoga Main Street Partnership's chairman for the event, at 585-6366.
