The Easter Bunny will be hopping into Skaneateles at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 19 for a grand Easter egg hunt.

All children ages 7 and under are invited to come down to Clift Park by the Gazebo and hunt for eggs filled with prizes. Hundreds of very special eggs will have an extra prize in the egg that can be redeemed from area merchants.

The Annual Skaneateles Easter Egg Hunt is sponsored and organized by the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation, and co-sponsored by the Skaneateles Rotary Club. This year students from the Skaneateles Junior National Honor Society will be helping Committee Chairs Katie Armijo and Lori Milne make this event happen.

After the hunt, the talented dancers from Gazella Dance Studio perform in the gazebo at 10:15 a.m.

Pride and Joy, located at 22 Jordan St., will offer free face painting at their store after the Easter Egg Hunt.
