WARWICK — On Saturday, April 15, it was cloudy but mild and pleasant for everyone attending the Easter Egg Hunt at Pennings Farm Market just off Route 94 South.
Last year market owner Steve Pennings welcomed what he described as the largest crowd of youngsters and their parents in recent memory.
And, as a result of that huge turn out, this year the Warwick Lions and Pennings Farm Market scheduled two egg hunts - one in the morning and another in the afternoon.
For each event volunteers and Pennings' employees had placed thousands of candies and chocolate eggs in the fields behind the market and leading up to the apple orchard.
During the morning and afternoon members of the Warwick Lions Club also assisted with parking and the organization of the popular event.
As usual hundreds of children were lined up for each event in three age groups: ages three and under, ages four to six and ages seven and older.
Moms, dads and grandparents were permitted to help their toddlers as they scrambled for the colorful eggs.
During each event, the Easter Bunny was also on hand to greet everyone along the starting line and pose for photos with the children before and following the egg hunt.
After last minute instructions and a 20-second countdown by Pennings, the children were off and hunting, not only for the ordinary goodies, but also for special "golden eggs."
Each one of these contained notes entitling the lucky child to a special Easter basket.
