Easter with egg baskets and bunnies
Sunday was crisp and cool, but the weather didn't limit Easter celebrations or activities. The Flying Horses opened on Saturday, just in time to host the Easter bunny on Sunday. The Easter bunny also stopped in to celebrate with the folks at Donaroma's Nursery. There was the annual egg hunt at Vineyard Gardens and family-style fun at the Portuguese American Club.
On March 21, the Island Ice Skating School showcased their talented skaters at their Spring Fling show. All ages participated, from 20 months old to adult, under the coaching of Julie Meader, Ashley Hamilton, and Diana Woods.
