Everything’s ‘find’ and candy for kids at Easter Egg Hunt


A blanket of colorful easter eggs dotted the grassy area and beach in front of sponsor Mulligan’s Beach House before swarms of children, in three age groups from toddlers to age 9, eagerly dove in, hoping to gather as many eggs as possible during the City of Vero Beach Recreation Department’s 62nd annual Easter Egg Hunt.

Roughly 3,000 candy-filled plastic eggs, plus some special golden eggs, had been carefully placed by recreation staff and volunteers, overseen by recreation supervisor Gaby Dwyer.

An extra-large but very friendly Easter Bunny was also on hand to make sure that no child was left empty handed, and Muffin the Clown was kept busy painting face-art on the youngsters. Plans are already in place for the 63rd Easter Egg Hunt, March 23, 2024.
