Wet Weather Changes Some Easter Weekend Events

Posted: Updated:

LEWES, Del. - The sun finally peeked out on Saturday after a night of severe weather across the peninsula. Although the wet weather put a damper on some pre-Easter events, it sure didn't damper anyone's mood.

For some, plans had to change. The lawn at Lewes Canalfront Park was still wet with Friday night's spring storm Luckily, that wasn't where Easter egg hunters went hunting.

Instead, organizers made a last-minute decision to leave the 9,000 plastic eggs in big, blue tubs. It's a good deal for egg hunters like Austin and Claire Humes.

"Coming up and getting the eggs from the buckets were kind of nice," Austin said.

Hundreds of Easter egg hunters were glad to spend time racing off the wet and slippery lawn, enjoying time playing and meeting the Easter Bunny instead.

It's a last-minute switch up well-worth it, according to Canalfront Park Boardmember, Dave Shook.

"If we destroyed the lawn, we would be in trouble with the city," Shook said. "We get everybody together and celebrate Easter with friends and neighbors, so we're grateful for the opportunity to put this on."

Shook says the wet weather may have changed plans but didn't change the estimated 400-per-year that turned out.
