Egg Scramble

10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. – While supplies last.


The egg hunt is ongoing from 10:30 to 12:30pm.  It does require an activity card to participate and is one square per hunt.  Groups of approximately 20 - 30 kids will be launched to collect all the eggs on the field until they’re gone.  The field will be reset with more eggs for the next group. 


Field #1 – 6 and older

This field is similar to a traditional egg hunt but with groups of 20 - 30 children at one time.  


Filed #2 – 5 and younger

This filed is spilt into a competitive section and non-competitive section.

Two thirds of the field is a traditional hunt where small groups of children will be launched to collect as many eggs as they can until they are gone.

One third of the field is for younger children, children with special needs, new walkers, and babies.  In this section, piles of 5 eggs are spread out for each child.  Your child can collect from only one pile and is guaranteed 5 eggs.  You can take as much time as you need and this is a great place to get photos.  Parents can join their children on the field in this section. 


The Egg Scramble is sponsored by:
