This year the town of North Bergen went above and beyond to celebrate the Easter holiday. They town put together around 900 goodies bags filled with stuffed bunnies, chocolate bunnies, watches, and toys.
This year, a second location was also added to the event. Goody bags were handed out at the library downtown, in addition to the bigger celebration held at the recreation center.
At the rec center, children could take photos with the Easter bunny, get their faces painted, and then meet with the mayor to receive their Easter surprises.
The event was packed, and hundreds of children and parents were lined up all throughout the rec center. Commissioner Hugo Cabrera said, “From the looks of it, were probably going to go through all 900 bags tonight.”
