egg hunt, which resulted in the city being sued.
The city hopes to bring in giant flame throwers this week to melt the snow pack enough for volunteers to hide the dozens of colored eggs. If the snow pack can be reduced to an inch, the hunt will go on as scheduled, if not it will be canceled. Looking on the bright side, an Easter egg hunt has never been canceled in Bridgeport. In 1988 it was moved from Easter to the 4th of July due to a flood. This was not a wise move however, due to the eggs spoiling in the hot sun. Channel 1 News will keep you updated on the developments.
