Balloons, baskets and bunnies highlighted the fourth annual Egggggstravanza, a celebration of Easter at the Five Towns Community Center in Lawrence on April 3 that was more fun than a hatful of rabbits.

The Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle of Long Island provided educational and historical material on the Buffalo Soldiers, African -Americans who were a part of the off the 9th, 10th, 24th, 25th, and Second 38th regiments  of the U.S. Army.
