A tradition in River Forest, kids and their parents gathered Saturday morning at Keystone Park to meet with the Easter Bunny and then search for the eggs he hid.

Almost 3,000 eggs, filled with candy and miniature toys, were scattered across the park for children to find. The golden egg, however, is the prize of the day. Karen Scherrer, recreation supervisor for the park district, helped the Easter Bunny hide a golden egg for one lucky child in each age group. With its discovery comes a basket of chocolate, candy and toys.

For more than a decade, hundreds have turned out for the annual egg hunt hosted by the park district. More recently, a breakfast held just prior to the frenzied search has expanded the tradition.

“We are thrilled that the Easter Bunny agreed to host a breakfast before the egg hunt,” Scherrer said prior to the weekend event.
