The Burlington County Commissioners are once again partnering with the Burlington County Sheriff’s Office and Special Services School District to hold a Spring Resource Fair and Egg Hunt.
The annual event for families of children with disabilities will be held Saturday, April 1, from 10 AM to 1 PM at the Burlington County Special Services School District Westampton Campus at 20 Pioneer Boulevard. It will feature sensory-friendly egg hunts and other games, music, food, touch-a-truck displays, 4H Club animals and more!
There will also be vendors and more than a dozen agencies and providers with information about various programs and services.
Families are encouraged to pre-register for the event online at https://burlingtoncountynj.formstack.com/forms/resource_fair_egg_hunt_2023.
In the event of rain or other inclement weather, the Resource Fair and Egg Hunt will be held on Sunday, April 2.
“Since this is the season of egg hunts, spring festivals and parties, we want all Burlington County children to feel included and able to safely enjoy the fun,” said Burlington County Commissioner Director Felicia Hopson. “This event is one of the only ones in the area specifically designed to be sensory-friendly, and we’re excited to again partner with the Special Services School District and the Sheriff’s Office to make it memorable for children and their families.”
“We’re thrilled to help host community events like this that allow families to enjoy spring and all the fun associated with the season and its holidays,” said Burlington County Sheriff James Kostoplis. “It’s also another opportunity for our officers to interact with residents and build stronger community ties. We plan to distribute information about safety and the many services the Sheriff’s Office offers at the event.”
The egg hunts will be conducted in small groups in three different sessions and with sensory-friendly aids, including eggs emitting sounds, flashing lights and magnetic devices. They will be held at 10 AM, 11 AM and noon.
Burlington County Special Services School District Board of Education President Tyler Burrell said the event was another opportunity for the County and School District to support students and families.
“The Spring Egg Hunter and Resource Fair is a testament to what happens when the Sheriff’s Office, County Commissioners, County Parks and Burlington County Special Services School District all work together,” Burrell said. “By working together, this annual event will undoubtedly be an exciting, fun-filled day for families to welcome in the spring season.”
