The quiet before the egg-grabbing storm.

On March 26, 2016 (the day before Easter Sunday) the City of Carlsbad will host their annual EGGstravaganza Spring Festival at the Poinsettia Community Park starting at 10 AM.

The event features an ongoing “egg scramble” of multiple egg hunts. . . Attendees can also enjoy a family scavenger hunt, photos with the Easter bunny, a fun zone with bounce houses, a giant slide and a chance to “soak the bunny.”

Poinsettia Community Park is located at 6600 Hidden Valley Road, in Carlsbad, California. Click here for a flashback of the 2010 event (oh, they grow up so quickly, don’t they?), or follow the jump for all the details.

EGGstravaganza Spring Festival, March 26

 

The City of Carlsbad’s popular EGGstravaganza Spring Festival returns Saturday, March 26, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Poinsettia Community Park, 6600 Hidden Valley Road.

The event features an ongoing “egg scramble” of multiple egg hunts. Groups of approximately 20 to 30 kids will run out to collect all the eggs on the field. Then the field will be reset for the next group. Parents are welcome to join their kids. To keep the scramble fun for all ages, one field will be designated for children ages 6 and over who want to race for their eggs, and an identical one will be for children ages 5 and under. There is also a noncompetitive field for young children, children with special needs, and for families wanting to pose for a photo opportunity.

Attendees can also enjoy a family scavenger hunt, photos with the Easter bunny, a fun zone with bounce houses, a giant slide and a chance to “soak the bunny.”

To avoid lines during the event, $6 activity cards and $6 unlimited fun zone wrist bands can be purchased in advance at city community centers. The cards can be divided among multiple children for activities like the egg scramble and Easter bunny photos. Both can be purchased from March 7 through March 25 at these locations Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.:

Rachael Shay, recreation supervisor for the City of Carlsbad, said, “EGGstravaganza is a chance for families with children of all ages to have some fun while celebrating spring’s arrival. Community events like these are part of what makes the City of Carlsbad a special place to live, where neighbors can connect and families can thrive,” Shay said.
