Stafford Twp Spring Festival and Easter Egg Hunt 2013

Spring Festival in Manahawkin with Easter Egg HuntThe Easter Bunny

Family and friends are invited to the Stafford Township Municipal Building Grounds, 260 Bay Avenue, Manahawkin on March 24, between 1:00 and 4:00 PM for an afternoon of fun and activities. Events include a flower sale, Easter Bunny, a clown, arts and crafts, local entertainment, food and of course an egg hunt!

The Easter Bunny, in legend, carries colored eggs in his basket, candy and sometimes also toys to the homes of children, and as such shows similarities to Santa Claus, as they both bring gifts to children on the night before their respective holiday. It was first mentioned in 1682 referring to an Alsace tradition of an Easter Hare bringing Easter Eggs.

The idea of an egg-laying bunny came to the U.S. in the 18th century. German immigrants in the Pennsylvania Dutch area told their children about the Easter 'Hare.' and in Northwest European folklore the "Easter Bunny" indeed is a hare, not a rabbit. According to the legend, only good children received gifts of colored eggs in the nests that they made in their caps and bonnets before Easter. In 1835, Jakob Grimm wrote of long-standing similar myths in Germany itself.
