the bunny that defended youngstown's easter

The Wick Park Neighborhood Association (WPNA website here) successfully launched a new tradition in the city - the Wick Park Easter Egg Hunt.

On hand was a 6 foot easter bunny...

Students from nearby Ursuline High School were instrumental in the success of the event, volunteering time to help kids with arts and crafts throughout the day.

A great diversity of people made it out to this historic neighborhood on the North Side.
