Boardman Park had their annual Evening with the Easter Bunny on March 28 and 29 for families to celebrate Easter at the park.
Families arrived at the Lariccia Family Community Center for what has become a tradition for some families. The event, which sold out both nights, included food, crafts and picture areas for the families.
Karen McCallum, the park’s recreation director and education specialist, said the night is a wonderful holiday tradition for families to enjoy the season together. The event helped begin the spring season at “the green oasis“ as well.
The park set up a number of activities for the families to do in the side room. They had seven different Easter-related crafts, such as stamping and coloring picture sheets. In the corner, Nicole D’Angelo brought her rabbit for children to pet. She said representatives at the park knew to contact her through the 4H Club.
They also had photo areas in the room. They had a professional photo setting where children could pose with the Easter Bunny. Another photo area had props for the children to pose with, such as a chicken popping out of an egg and a bunny.
In the dining hall, the park treated families to a dinner with chicken nuggets, fish sticks and apple sauce. They also had a carrots and a leafy salad for the holiday season. They played movies while the families ate, including “The Easter Bunny is Comin’ to Town.”
This is the park’s 15th year having the event. They have holiday events like this throughout the year, such as Supper with Santa in December. They also have family programs without a holiday theme, like the Mommy and Me Tea on May 6.
