Posted 3/30/13 - Since 1931, the Sierra Madre Volunteer Firefighters’ Association has hosted an Easter Egg Hunt each spring.  This year’s took place today, March 30th, at Memorial Park.  As they have for many years now, Nestle USA, Inc. donated thousands of pieces of candy for the enjoyment of the kids (and their parents).  In addition to candy scattered in three sections of the park (so that the kids can be grouped by age), there are a couple dozen “golden” eggs hidden in the park (some in plain sight).  If you find a gold egg, you get to turn it in and receive a big prepared basket full of candy and other goodies (we noticed a soccer ball in one and a basketball in another!).

The Easter Bunny arrived on a fire engine shortly before 10am, when the bell sounded to start the hunt.  He stayed around to take pictures with the kids following the hunt.  Events like these, folks, are what makes Sierra Madre, Sierra Madre.  Below the video, there’s a gallery of photos, enjoy.
