WEST LONG BRANCH: More than 100 youngsters dashed for eggs at the Easter Egg Hunt celebration at the borough community center on Saturday.
The eggs were spread on three sections of the community center lawn, and the children, arranged by grade, grabbed as many as they could.
The annual event featured music that had feet tapping and arms waving as parents also enjoyed the beautiful weather.
First prize in the Jelly Bean Count Contest went to Nick Contelli, the kindergarten/first grade prize was won by Amanda Foster, and the 2nd/3rd Grade prize went to winner Ashley Pape.
Kelly, a third grade student at Betty McElmon School said she enjoyed the fun day.
"I liked seeing my baby 2-year old cousin who was visiting," she said.
Her friend Madison, a Frank Antonides School fifth grader had fun as well.
“I had a chance to see people I usually do not get to see, and I enjoyed making new friends," she said.
The Egg Hunt Committee of Debbie and Kevin Ronan, Carrie and Matt Sniffen, Greg Malfa and Sherry Karpe were pleased with the attendance.
“It’s a good crowd,” Debbie said.
