Mayor’s 29th Annual Easter Egg Hunt Changed to a Drive-Through Format
Westfield – Due to the forecasted rain on Saturday April 1st, Mayor Michael McCabe has announced that the Annual Easter Egg Hunt will once again be a drive- through event this year. Originally planned to take place at the Middle School, the venue has changed to the High School which is better suited for the drive-through style format.
“When we planned the hunt this year, we knew the Middle School area was going to be a busy area for parking, and had plans in place to accommodate the congestion.” said Mayor McCabe, “Now, with the steady rain expected on Saturday morning, we have shifted the egg hunt to a drive-through style event, and changed the venue to the High School. That way we can still have a little fun and keep everyone safe.”
This will be the third time the annual celebration has been held in a drive-through format, which proved a successful model in 2021 and 2022 under the confines of the pandemic. “We were really looking forward to returning to the traditional format this year,” said McCabe “Although we are disappointed, we are happy to have drive-through as a back- up plan.”
The drive-through Easter Egg Hunt will take place on Saturday April 1st at the Westfield High School from 9:30-10:30. Visitors will receive plastic Easter eggs filled with either candy or small toys and say hello to Mayor McCabe, the Easter Bunny, and various other local mascots. The Westfield Food Pantry will have their donation truck on hand to accept non-perishable items.
