The Easter Bunny visited Kane County Cougars fans at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva for breakfast and an Easter egg hunt on the ball field on Saturday.

About 115 parents and children attended the first time-event, according to Director of Promotions Jenni Brechtel, adding the ballclub hopes to make it an annual event.

The Easter Bunny made his rounds to all the tables doling out high-fives, receiving hugs and posing for photos, later joined by team mascot Ozzie Cougar.

Elena Giudice, 2, of Aurora gave the bunny a big hug, but told him simultaneously, "You forget to give me candy," amusing her mom, Kimmy.

The four Karlovsky children of Algonquin, all wore tall bunny ears to breakfast and brought pails to collect eggs. Their parents, Dawn and Tim Karlovsky, are regular season ticket holders.

Zach DellaFranco, 6, of St. Charles described meeting the bunny as "cool." He has a broken arm, but he wasn't going to let it slow him down when it came to gathering eggs, saying, "I'm going to collect all of them!"
