Brooklyn Heights Spring Egg Hunt 2011

Kids, parents, strollers, cameras and Easter baskets poured into Pierrepont Playground on Easter Sunday morning for the 2011 Brooklyn Heights Spring Egg Hunt. (It was held Sunday because of Saturday's rain storm.) The Spring Fling in Brooklyn Bridge Park went on as planned Saturday in spite of the rain.

Candy-filled eggs were on the ground, stuck in fences and trees and all over the climbing equipment. Since the event was held Easter Sunday, Heights Kids toy store couldn't be there to blow up balloons as usual, but music therapist John Samson provided very enjoyable singing, clapping, stamping and dancing fun.

The littlest kids gathered candy-filled eggs on the lawn.

The Brooklyn Heights Playground Committee hid little toys as well as eggs. They sold delicious baked goods (brownies, bird nests) and coffee, too.

The money from the bake sale goes to fund the playground's summer arts and science programs.
