NEW CANAAN — A bevy of beaming kids and their families spent Saturday morning with the Easter Bunny at Waveny Park, thanks to a special breakfast event organized by the Recreation Department.

“Today is just celebrating getting young kids in to see the Easter Bunny,” said Steve Dayton, recreation supervisor, for the fourth year in a row welcoming around 50 kids and their folks.

Food, face painting and a bingo game with prizes added to the festivities, which included valuable help from members of Girl Scout Troop 50544.

“We couldn’t do it without them,” Dayton said.
