March 22, 2018 By Nathaly Pesantez

Woodside on the Move (WOTM), the non-profit group serving the western queens neighborhood for decades, will be hosting its first annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday.

The “Easter Eggstravaganza” will take place at 11 am on March 24 inside Doughboy Park at 56th Street and Woodside Avenue. Over 4,000 candy-filled eggs will be available to collect at the park, along with just two golden eggs containing a special prize, according to the group.

Children will be divided by age for the hunt, with one group taking children up to 5 years old, and another group for kids ages 6 to 9.

The event will also feature face painting and a guest appearance from the Easter Bunny.

Tickets to participate in the egg hunt cost $5 per child, and can be purchased through Eventbrite or at WOTM’s offices, located at 39-42 59th St. Tickets will also be available at the event.

This was a great event. For $5 a kid, you can’t lose, no complaints. Great day. Great weather. Thanks for putting this on. Please do it again next year.

These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
