TICONDEROGA - Spring, and the Easter Bunny, will officially arrive in Ticonderoga Saturday, April 3.
That's the date of the third annual Downtown Ticonderoga Spring Fling and the annual Ticonderoga Kiwanis Easter egg hunt.
Activities will get under way at 10 a.m. with the Easter egg hunt in Bicentennial Park.
In a change from past years, the egg hunt will feature three age groups - age 4 and younger, ages 5-6 and ages 7-8.
"There will not be a 9 and 10 year old group," explained Enid Engler of the Kiwanis. "The Easter Bunny will be on hand to officiate and for photos."
In the event of bad weather, the egg hunt will be at the Ticonderoga Armory Community Center on Champlain Avenue at 10 a.m.
Created and staffed by volunteers of the Promotion Committee of the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership, the Spring Fling will take place from 10:15 a.m. to noon in LaChute Hall on the second floor of the Community Building.
The event is free and open to pre-school to third grade children who will be treated to crafts, story time, face painting and a visit with the Easter Bunny. There will be an opportunity to have photos taken with the Easter Bunny.
"This event was well attended last year, and we are hoping for an even larger crowd this year," said event chairman, Joyce Cooper.
