The village of Tuckahoe held its annual Easter egg hunt on April 15, where hundreds of children flooded Parkway Oval Field in search of nearly 1,100 Easter eggs.
According to John Galluzzi, a recreation attendant for the village, the event was the largest he’s seen to date.
“This event has grown in leaps and bounds in recent years and it would not have been possible without the generous funding we receive, and the mayor and Board of Trustees for producing this event as big as we do.”
Funding from the event came from the Generoso Pope Foundation, a private foundation located in Tuckahoe which supports local civic and cultural initiatives.
Nutmeg Café, located on Main Street, and Gyro Uno, a food truck out of Astoria, Queens, provided food and drinks for the event; a disc jockey from Ray Entertainment 2000 played music for the children and onlookers.
“As long as the children are happy, we’re happy,” Galluzzi said. “It’s a wonderful thing to put a smile on a kid’s face.”
