This Saturday’s Hippity Hoppity Easter event in downtown Port Washington might be the coldest such event in recent years, officials said.

    So cold, in fact, that they plan to provide hot chocolate and coffee in the warming shelter at Veterans Park during the Easter bonnet contest and egg hunt, said Greater Port Washington Kiwanis Club member John Sigwart.
    “The event will go on, snow or shine,” Main Street Executive Director Sara Grover said.

    The club and Port Washington Main Street sponsor the annual vent, which will be held in Veterans Park beginning at 9:30 a.m. Saturday.

    The day will kick off with the annual Easter bonnet contest at 9:30 a.m. Prizes will be awarded in categories that range from children to adults and pets.

    The Easter Bunny will be in the park, posing for photographs with children, from 9:30 a.m. until the 10 a.m. egg hunt. Eggs will be left in a cordoned-off area, and youngsters will be admitted in age groupings, with the youngest going first.

    After the egg hunt, children are encouraged to visit downtown merchants that display a dancing egg symbol in their windows. These merchants will have special treats for the youngsters.

    The Easter Bunny will also be available  for photos downtown.

    The event runs through 1 p.m.
