Mayor W. Reed Gusciora announced today that the City of Trenton will celebrate Easter by having the Easter Bunny visit each ward on a Trenton Fire Department truck this Saturday, April 3, 2021.
The tour takes the place of the annual “Great Egg Hunt” sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Trenton and held in Cadwalader Park since 1921. The usual event was modified to account for ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.
City residents are invited to greet the Easter Bunny as he starts from Fire Headquarters on Perry Street at 11:30 a.m. then travels to MLK Jr. Blvd., Clinton Ave., Hamilton Ave., Broad St., Pennington Ave., Stuyvesant Ave., and Hillvista Blvd before reaching Cadwalader Park at 1:00 p.m. All children at the park will receive a treat from the “Bunny Patrol” free of charge. Participants are asked to wear a mask and always maintain social distance during the event.
The event is sponsored by Trenton Fire Department, the Kiwanis Club of Trenton, Science Mentors One-to-One, N.J. Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association Locals 6 and 206 and Wegman’s Market Princeton.
