Easter’s almost here and, for kids, that can mean only one thing — the hunt is on.

Hundreds of Brooklyn tots hungry for goodies and prizes assembled in Marine Park on April 1 for the ninth-annual “Hunt for the Golden Egg” Easter egg hunt.

The kids were all lined up by 2 pm, when they were unleashed to scour the park clean of all neon-colored, plastic eggs, which — while devoid of candy — contained prize vouchers that could be turned in to claim masks, coloring books, kaleidoscopes, bouncy balls, candies, and lollipops.

However, if the young ones weren’t into hunting for eggs, there was still plenty to do — including the classic bouncy house, face paintings, and complimentary prizes.

Five lucky raffle winners took home gigantic Easter egg baskets full of candy and other goodies — but everyone went home with a big smile.
