NORTH BLENHEIM—The Easter Bunny will make his annual visit to the admission-free visitors center at the New York Power Authority’s Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped Storage Power Project from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 1.

The bunny will pose for free photos with children, and stuffed cloth replicas of boy and girl bunnies will also be available for photos.  Parents may bring their cameras.

In other highlights of the admission-free event, “Domino the Great” will perform a magic show for children from noon to 1 p.m. and there will be a raffle for several baskets filled with Easter goodies.

The visitors center, featuring interactive exhibits and displays on such topics as Basics of Electricity, uses of electricity and operation of the Blenheim-Gilboa project, will be open as usual from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The center is located on Route 30, 17 miles south of Middleburgh and five miles north of Grand Gorge.
