Easter isn’t something people usually get “in the spirit” for, not like Christmas anyways. Eggstravaganza seeks to change that. This festival is sponsored by the Victory Family Church and is loaded with as much spring revelry as it is old-fashioned family fun. Always celebrated the Friday and Sunday of Easter weekend, this festival is a perfect way to soak up the springtime weather and appreciate all that this time of year has to offer. With large egg hunts, fun activities and great local food, Eggstravaganza is sure to inject a warm-hearted feeling of Easter Joy and a general excitement for spring’s bounty into all who visit.
Each kid is given a bag of treats at the start of the festival, but that’s just the start. Like any Easter-centric event, the essential activity at Eggstravaganza is the egg hunts. These massive hunts are impressive in size and great fun for the whole family. Over the weekend there are a total of eight of them. Each hunt has specified age groups, so there’s no need to worry about toddlers competing with ten year olds for little chocolate filled treats. Oh, and each hunt has approximately ten thousand eggs. Eggstravanza isn’t big, it’s huge! Some bags are available, but kids are encouraged to bring their own basket or bag.
Eggstravaganza is fun for the whole family but it’s definitely geared for children, especially young children. With bouncy huts, puppet shows, and a visit from the Easter Bunny, there are plenty of fun activities to keep the little ones busy. The festival also offers hands on activities like face painting, temporary tattoos, cookie decorating, and balloon art. Fire trucks from the local fire houses are on display and kids can explore all there is about these massive machines. There is even a visit from the Easter Bunny. Don’t forget to bring the camera!
