(MyFoxBoston.com) -- A not so 'Hoppy Easter' for residents of Arlington.

According to the Boston Globe, Arlington's Recreation Department has rescheduled its 5th Annual Easter Egg Hunt because of lingering snow and poor field conditions at McClennen Field.

The egg hunt has been moved from Friday, March 29 to Tuesday, April 9 at 2 p.m. which is an early release day for students at Arlington Public Schools. The egg hunt is open for children between the ages of two through 10, and is broken into three different age groups.

The egg hunt is free, but the town is asking that kids bring their own basket or paper bag to collect the eggs.
