Wantagh ushers in spring with Fun Hunt


Roughly 200 local residents, from Wantagh and neighboring towns, attended the 26th annual Wantagh Chamber of Commerce Spring Fun Hunt on April 14 at the children’s playground in Wantagh Park.

Chamber President Kathy Powell said the event was “fabulous.” The weather was warm enough for the children to run around without jackets on, just cool enough that the dressed up Easter Bunny did not sweat, she said.

The event was sponsored by 10 local businesses, and featured events for all ages, including face painting, raffle baskets and 5,000 plastic eggs filled with candy and little toys.

The Kiwanis Club of Wantagh provided free refreshments.
