A new event was held on Staten Island to make sure children with disabilities aren't excluded from holiday festivities.
The first Beeping Easter Egg Hunt in New York City took place Thursday at the Common Cafe in Bloomfield. It was hosted by the Non-profit City Access New York which tries to promote inclusion for the disabled.
The event allowed children with visual and sensory impairments the ability to search for eggs.
Once the kids found the eggs they traded them in for treats.
"I couldn't really help my children or participate because I end up stepping on the eggs because my vision is so poor. So, it was really important to me to have an event that kind of is like a right of passage for Spring," said Holly Bonner with City Access New York.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives made the beeping eggs used during Thursday's Easter egg hunt.
