The crowd was anxious last Saturday, March 27, before the start of the Spring Egg Scramble, the Island’s traditional “egg” hunt, which is really more like a candy grab.
At the Crab Cove event, kids are divided up by age.
The rowdy five- and six-year olds (see photo above) were jumping around for the candy as the Alameda Recreation and Park Department staff were throwing it around the grass field.
Jonathon Holley, 6, of Alameda — see photo below – was one of about 500-plus kids and adults that participated in the ’10 Spring Egg Scramble.
And six-year-old cousins Asiah Sanders and Trinity Malone had to slow down and catch their breath after participating in the candy fest.
Twins Graciela and Nathanial Basco, 5, caught up with Edison School buddies at the event, and recreation staff helped them share candy … with a smile.
