The Town of Lauderdale by the Sea will hold its annual Easter Egg Hunt and Bonnet Contest.   April  7, 2012 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.  The event starts promptly at 9 so don’t be late!  The egg hunt is broken up into 3 groups, starting with the youngest kids.  The volunteers who plan the Town events always do an amazing job!

Past Review:
The event was moved a few years back from the Municipal Park Ball Field to the parking lot of the Town Hall. The Egg Hunt itself was split up by age group and even though the area was much smaller and more crowed the Egg Hunt was still successful. No child left without a full basket at this hunt.  I did wish that they had allowed kids to enter from both ends. The smaller kids had a the disadvantage of getting all the way across fast enough.  I must admit I did like doing it on the field better as the parking lot was very crowded.

Refreshments were provided in Jarvis Hall along with a visit from the Big Guy himself, the Easter Bunny. The Easter Bunny arrived in South Florida style riding in a decorated red convertible Mini where he awed the crowd with his dancing ability. There were also photo opportunities for those who brought their cameras inside Jarvis Hall.

Last but not least is the Bonnet Contest.  Anyone can enter all you have to do is be creative, and the locals of LBS are that! These amazing Easter bonnets are adorned with everything from Easter Baskets to Bunny ears and look like they are as much fun to make as they are to see. We are definitley going to try to make a bonnet this year!

Lauderdale by the Sea’s next Town Event will be the Town Fourth of July Parade & Fireworks, so make sure to mark calendar now because celebrations in the Town of Lauderdale by the Sea are not to be missed.
