Around 3,000 people came out to the City of Fairfax’s annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 20, 2019, at Van Dyck Park in Fairfax. Sponsored by Combined Properties and the City of Fairfax Parks and Recreation, the morning was divided into five different egg hunts – for children ages 1-2 up to 9-10 – searching for a total of 30,000 eggs stuffed with candy and toys. Other activities included pictures with the Easter Bunny, chalk art, coloring, a moon bounce, sack races, bubbles and more.
According to Katie MacCammon, Community Program Coordinator with the City of Fairfax Parks and Recreation: “At the City of Fairfax, we really focus on community engagement and this is one of our big community events that brings people of all different ages and all different types of people to the same event to enjoy a nice day outside in the park and just a fun activity for the kids.”
