Hundreds of Cicero families and children packed Community Park on March 26 for the annual Easter in the Park celebration.
Children lined around the fields at 34th & Laramie, eyeing the treasure-filled eggs before them, as they awaited the opportunity to dash for plastic packages containing candy, chocolate, toys and more. The hunt, a centerpiece of the festival, started off the afternoon of springtime celebrations that included train rides, face painting and a chance to meet the Easter Bunny.
Town President Larry Dominick praised the Department of Special Events for bringing together the town’s residents for such a grand celebration.
“I am grateful to the department for being able to get so many families to gather and celebrate such an important holiday,” Dominick said. “And I really enjoy hearing about the many children who delight in meeting the Easter Bunny and getting to hunt for eggs during this time of year.”
