The Lyme Academy of Fine Arts, in partnership with Lyme Old Lyme Lions Club, would like to invite you to join us at the First Annual Spring Eggstravaganza on Saturday, April 16 from 11am – 1pm. Adults and children are invited to gather on the Academy’s campus on Lyme Street from 11 am – 1 pm for an afternoon of festive outdoor activities including egg hunts, live music, food, photos, and more!
To get the festivities started, two Easter Egg Hunts, grouped by age will take place on the main lawn, followed by 3-Legged, Potato Sack, and Egg & Spoon Races. Simultaneous to the activities on the lawn, live music performances will be performed by John Brown and the Back Porch Pickers, made possible by Music Now Foundation and Nightingale’s Acoustic Cafe.
In the spirit of community, several Lyme/Old Lyme organizations will be contributing to the activities offered. The Florence Griswold Museum will be hosting a fun arts and craft project called “Flutterbys and Busy Bees”. A pop-up photo event, hosted by The Old Lyme Historical Society will be offering a photo opportunity for attendees to capture pictures of themselves as old-fashioned bathers, and the Lyme Youth Services Bureau will be showcasing the final weekend of the Region 18 Young Impressions Art Show in the Sill House.
“The Lyme-Old Lyme Lions are happy to partner with the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts to create a fun, wholesome event, a Spring Eggstravaganza. We will have over 500 candy-filled eggs and even some treasure eggs to be turned in for prizes,” says Bev Lewis, President of the Lyme-Old Lyme Lion. “We will also be serving our famous hamburgers, cheeseburgers, and hot dogs at the event.” Food and refreshments will be offered for sale on-site during the event. The Lyme – Old Lyme Lions Club will be making their famous BBQ Hamburgers, Hotdogs, and will offer a selection of refreshments.
