Kids, adults and even a couple of dogs gathered on the green space at Town Hall in anticipation of the town’s annual Easter Bunny Parade on April 14.

When the Easter Bunny emerged, he led the crowd — some dressed in their holiday best and some sporting bunny ears — around the circular driveway. Then the Easter Bunny took a seat in the gazebo while children waited patiently to have their picture taken with the dapper rabbit who also handed out jellybean-filled plastic eggs.

This tradition is not just for youngsters. While one must be 8 years old or younger to get a picture and candy, children too old to take a seat on the Easter Bunny’s lap could be found volunteering at coloring and face-painting stations.
