The Young Women's League of New Canaan will conduct its 42nd annual Easter Egg Hunt at 9:30 a.m. March 28 at Waveny Park.

The event kicks off with the arrival of Mr. and Mrs. Bunny and their chicks on the Old Faithful antique fire engine. The day will feature bounce houses and face painting and a performance by The Masqueraders Dixieland band.

Mr. and Mrs. Bunny will be available for pictures with children courtesy of Little Voice Photos. The egg hunt will take place at 10:40, where one child in each age group will walk away with the golden egg containing a gift certificate redeemable at the New Canaan Toy Store.

Zumbach's Gourmet coffee will donate hundreds of cups of coffee while YWL members and friends bake more than 1,000 cupcakes, cookies, muffins and breads that will be available for purchase.

Proceeds from the event will go to the YWL Giving Fund to benefit organizations supporting women in the community. This year's designated grant recipients include Malta House and the Domestic Violence Crisis Center in Norwalk as well as many other local organizations.

In the event of inclement weather, the egg hunt will take place on the same day and time but at New Canaan High School.
