Eggs will drop from the skies today in Amesbury

Fundraiser planned at sports park


All ticket proceeds will go to Lucy’s Love Bus, and Frick said the group would have a meter going at the Sports Park indicating how much money had been raised and how many children they would be able to help as a result.

Frick said the Sports Park was the one who came up with the idea and wanted Lucy’s Love Bus to be the beneficiary of the event.

“They’ve been really awesome and helped us do it,” she said.

There will be two egg drops throughout the afternoon, one at noon for children ages 1 to 6 and another at 2:30 for children 7 to 18. There will also be helicopter rides, pony rides, raffles, face painting, hair art, food, photos with the Easter Bunny, and a Bunny Hop dance-off at 12:45 p.m.

In addition, there will be live performances by The Brew at 1 p.m., Mateo & Kitarah at 2:15 and AHMIR at 3.

Given the huge response the event has already generated, Lucy’s Love Bus is already looking ahead to next year.

“If it works out, we’re hoping to do another one and make it annual,” Frick said.
