FAIRFIELD — Bunnies weren’t the only ones hopping with excitement Saturday afternoon when Fairfield’s annual Egg Hunt finally hatched.

Thanks to the Town Youth Council and Parks & Rec Department—ably assisted by 10,000 eggs—hundreds of kids got an egg-hunting do-over at the South Pine Creek Soccer Field after the previous week’s plan got rained out.

“It’s great for the little kids,” Bernadette Falletta of Fairfield, who joined other volunteers and members of the Department of Public Works, in making this a special event.
