RIDGEFIELD — Dozens of children arrived to Ballard Park on Saturday morning with baskets of all shapes and sizes in tow. Their goal: fill them to the brim.

The annual Egg Scramble, hosted by Ridgefield Parks & Recreation, invited the town’s youngest residents to scavenge Ballard’s grounds while collecting colorful Easter eggs.

Families with children of all ages gathered to meet and greet before the mad egg dash began. A special visit from the Easter Bunny brought an added layer of excitement, as many hopped over to take a picture with their new furry friend.
