NORTHWEST CORNER — Several municipalities in the area are planning Easter-related family events, with each of them adapting to Covid regulations due to safety amidst the pandemic.
In Winsted, residents will be able to pick up Easter eggs for their children at the Rowley Street Playground on 75 Rowley Street at a drive-thru event on Thursday, April 1, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The town’s Recreation Department will be giving away the Easter eggs filled with candy to each resident who drives to the playground.
However, everyone must stay in their car to collect their bags.
“We’re doing it where adults can pick up the eggs so they can hold their Easter egg hunts on their properties,” Recreation Director Tanya Risucci said. “Children will still be able to say hello to the Easter Bunny as their parents collect the eggs. We didn’t want to hold our egg hunt this year because it would have attracted a large crowd.”

The event is for Preschool to 3rd-grade students and is limited to one parent or guardian per family.
