While Massachusetts is only 10 days out from our largest snowstorm of the season, it's officially spring and an early Easter holiday is right around the corner.

After most of Massachusetts experienced a mild winter, comparatively, March temperatures have continued to be slightly higher than normal, which bodes well for a warm spring season. I'm sure we can all remember years past when even the easter bunny was wearing a winter jacket, but with highs around 57 degrees predicted it looks like this year should be decent.

In the spirit of the season, the City of Pittsfield, Massachusetts welcomes back its popular Eggstravaganza Egg Scramble. 2023 marks the 77 year anniversary of the event. 

The event makes its return on Saturday, April 8 at The Common, 100 First St.
The event is free and open to Pittsfield children ages 2-11. The rain date is April 15.

The schedule per age group is as follows:
• 10:30 a.m. – 9,10, and 11-year-olds
• 10:40 a.m. – 7 and 8-year-olds
• 10:55 a.m. – 5 and 6-year-olds
• 11:10 a.m. – 4 year-olds
• 11:25 a.m. – 2 and 3-year-olds
A prize will be awarded in each age group for those who find the lucky golden egg. Balloon creations will be provided by BTC Entertainment. Parents and guardians are encouraged to bring a camera as there will be a special visit by Mr. Bunny.

Remember, children are required to bring their own basket.

This year's event is sponsored by Greylock Federal Credit Union.
