Posted 4/7/12 – This morning the Sierra Madre Volunteer Firefighters’ Association held an Easter Egg Hunt as they have done every year since 1931, at Memorial Park. With the help of Nestles, thousands of pieces of candy were placed on the lawn in the park, which was divided into sections so kids could hunt among others of their own age group. Eighteen golden eggs were also distributed throughout the park, which could be turned in for a big, fancy pre-packaged Easter basket. The Easter Bunny arrived on a fire engine a few minutes before the hunt started, and stuck around till after the last piece of candy was picked up, so parents and grandparents could take advantage of a photo op of their loved one with him/her. Thanks to SMVFA for carrying on this Sierra Madre tradition, enjoy the photo gallery. Click on a photo to enlarge it.
