Happy Easter !

 

 

PEZ Candy abruptly canceled its annual Easter egg hunt in Orange, Conn., on Saturday morning after parents disobeyed rules and turned the child-focused tradition “into a mess,” the company said in a statement.

“We sincerely tried our best to create a fun, free activity for everyone to enjoy. Due to the actions of a few, the good intent quickly turned into a mess.” PEZ wrote in response to a critical comment on its Facebook page. “We only wanted to do good for the local community.”

One parent said her son got a bloody nose from another parent pushing him to the ground, while a third claimed her son’s Easter basket was broken in the rush, the Hartford Courant reported.

Orange Police said they did not respond to the event.

PEZ said it had over 9,000 eggs on three separate fields, each of which was designated for a particular age group with start times 15 minutes apart, but parents rushed onto the fields before the posted start times.

“Somebody pushed me over and take my eggs and it’s very rude of them and they broke my bucket,” 4-year-old Vincent Welch told NBC Connecticut.

“Unfortunately people chose to enter the first field prior to anyone from PEZ staff starting the activity,” PEZ explained.

“The crowd moved to the 2nd field, waited for only a couple of minutes and proceeded to rush the field without being directed to do so and before the posted start time. The crowd then immediately moved to the 3rd field and took over and removed everything well before the activity was to even start.”

 
Meanwhile, a miracle sighting in Central Park…

    Burbank can rejoice that ‘Thick-as-a-Bric” has retired to Sun Valley.

    Parents and children were able to enjoy their EggStravaganza.

    You may recall Bric objected to the cost of the event, and even tried to delete the Fun Event from the Budget.

      It was indeed cancelled one year, until Mike Nolan and his blue bunny shamed them iNTO reinstating it the next year

    The same chaos broke out a number of years ago in Carson Park. I brought my kid there once. She nearly got trampled.
