Children got to hang out with the Easter Bunny and hunt for brightly colored eggs during the annual Easter fair organized by Our Lady of Grace Church on the weekend of March 12 and 13.

The event, held at the church, 385 Avenue W, also included an Easter breakfast on Sunday, pictures with the Easter Bunny on Saturday and egg painting.

A total of 97 kids showed up for the egg hunt, sponsored by Imperial Tae Kwon Do, said Mary Ann De Luca, an organizer of the occasion, who added that 58 youngsters took photos with the big bunny.

In addition, there were also games such as a ring toss or basketball shoot for people to take part in, run by Joann Cassata and the Boy Scouts. Patricia Marotta, a parishioner, helped organize the Italian Café downstairs where breakfast, lunch and dinner were served all day. Vendors were also on hand selling Easter goodies.

Among those who contributed to the event were the church’s teen group, the Knights of Columbus, Boy and Girl Scouts and the Widowed Support Group.
