City hosts egg hunt Saturday

GLOVERSVILLE — Egg hunters will get a chance to ply their skills at Trail Station Park on Saturday as the 6th annual Easter Egg Hunt comes to the city.

The event will kick off at noon with the egg hunt. Children will be directed to sections of the park based on their age.

City Recreation Commission Chairman Logan Barclay said around 7,000 eggs have been packed with candy and will be ready for children to find come Saturday.

Barclay said participants are encouraged to come early so they can be put into one of four age groups with the hunt expected to start right at noon.

Barclay said that there will be a “lucky duck” egg in each category. The children who find this egg will win a basket filled with Easter goodies donated by No Bottom Left Behind Diaper Bank of Johnstown.

The Gloversville Fire Department will be hosting an open house as well at the Frontage Road station.

Firefighters will be handing out candy and giving tours of the firehouse and firetrucks.

“The firefighters decided they wanted to help us out this year,” Barclay said.

There will be some extra candy on hand for any children who don’t find an egg of their own at both Trail Station Park and the fire house.

The Easter Bunny will be present for photographs in the gazebo at a cost of $10. The event will run until 2 p.m.
