The weather had threatened to put a damper on the festivities. City of Lake Worth Crew and volunteers showed up regardless of rainy weather, it started a bit late but once started it was all sunshine and went off without a hitch. A new feature this year was the Bonnet Parade, it was small. What a nice 100-year-old tradition to revive. A wonderfull performance by our own Wes Blackman of the “Velveteen Rabbit” with a fine historical introduction of how it came about. A first this year was the participation of the Front Porch courtresy of the NAPC, it was designated as the drawing corner. It was manned by Louise Noaks artist, nice to see one of the artists from the Arts Lofts volunteering in the city. Home Depot made an appearance and entertained the kids with projects. There were two bounce houses this year. The Balloon Toss again was an all time favorite among the field games.
There were 40 baskets given away for winners and raffle prizes. Of course it was all about the hunt for colored eggs hidden in the straw.
