The line led from the the playground, along Pierrepont Place, past Montague Street, and all the way to Remsen Street.
Kids were thrilled and parents thankful.

Monkey Monkey Music entertained the crowd with upbeat, kid-oriented rock.
Heights Kids decorated the playground with colorful balloons, and Lassen & Hennigs provided coffee.
Because of the beautiful weather the Pierrepont egg hunt drew a bigger crowd than last week's soggy Spring Fling at Brooklyn Bridge Park, which has a lot more room for these crowds. The egg hunt at BBP in 2008 drew more than 10,000 people!
A similar huge crowd packed Pierrepont in 2010, when there was no egg hunt at all in Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Karl Junkersfeld’s created a video of the scene, posted at the Brooklyn Heights Blog.
