Great DownEaster Egg Hunt returns to Stonington

Celebrate the arrival of spring with a host of family-friendly activities. The latest cold snap makes it impossible to believe, but spring is here—and the residents and businesses of downtown Stonington are celebrating with the second annual Great DownEaster Egg Hunt.

On Saturday, March 31, at 2 p.m., the event will kick off at the Island Community Center with an Easter Egg Basket decorating craft session. Participants will also be able to play Easter Egg (Cupcake) Bingo with Island Adult and Community Education. At 2:45, the Stonington Public Library hosts an Easter story-telling event, while across the street, Penobscot Bay Press hosts coloring and crafts. Then at 3 p.m., kiddies can head over to Camden National Bank to get their pictures taken with the Easter Bunny, before parading through downtown Stonington and collecting presents and goodies from local businesses.

At 3:30 p.m. at the Stonington Opera House, the event concludes with the Great DownEaster Egg Hunt, which will take place all through the Opera House building.

This event is created in partnership with the Island Community Center, the Deer Isle-Stonington Chamber of Commerce, Camden National Bank, Deer Isle-Stonington schools, Edible Island, Healthy Island Project, Opera House Arts, Penobscot Bay Press, the Reach Performing Arts Center, the Stonington Public Library and the Town of Stonington.
