You know what they say about rabbits!

Thousands of tots and their parents hopped down the bunny trail into Shore Road Park on March 30 for the 11th annual Easter Egg Hunt, overwhelming the staff and supplies that event sponsor state Sen. Marty Golden (R–Bay Ridge) had prepared.

“The crowd was triple what we anticipated,” said organizer Chip “Festival Guy” Cafiero. “It was amazing how many people came out.”

Cafiero and his team hid 6,000 eggs with prizes inside around the greenspace, but just an hour into the event they had to ask the basket-toting young ’uns to take a 20-minute break so that the crew could restock their supply of treats and put the bright plastic capsules out again.

“We didn’t have a piece of candy left, not a toy, nothing,” Cafiero said.

Children also got to play on an inflated slide and obstacle course and dance to a DJ, while parents played a raffle for prize baskets courtesy of local businesses.

Golden said he was overjoyed at the strong turnout.

“Watching thousands of children of our community come together for my annual Easter Egg Hunt is truly a highlight and shows the vitality of the great number of families that call Bay Ridge home,” the official said, adding that he was looking forward to next year’s hunt.
