It’s time to grab an egg hunt basket and some fresh carrots for the Easter bunny and head to Eldridge Park, 2511 Eldridge Road, on Saturday, March 31, from noon to 3pm, for the City of Sugar Land’s 28th annual EGGStravaganza.
More than 30,000 treat-filled, biodegradable eggs will be scattered at the park for children up to 12 years old to collect during the City’s now famous “egg scrambles.” Treats will include candy, small toys and the opportunity to choose an extra prize from the prize booths.
This year’s egg scramble schedule follows:
• Ongoing throughout the event for children 4 years old and younger
• 12:30 p.m. for 5-year-olds
• 1 p.m. for 6-years-olds
• 1:30 p.m. for 7-year-olds
• 2 p.m. for 8- and 9-year-olds
• 2:30 p.m. for 10-, 11- 12-year-olds
Each scramble lasts about one minute and is not repeated, so children should be at the scramble for their age group on time.
Children with special needs will also be able to join the egg scramble fun at their own “Beeping Bunnies” egg hunt area. A section for children with visual impairments will include beeping eggs hidden among plush bunnies. Another area will include a touch-sense course with eggs hidden at accessible heights for children with mobility impairments. Both areas will be ongoing throughout the event.
Children will also have an opportunity to meet the Easter bunny and free photos will be offered to the first 200 guests.
New this year is a giant foam area for kids to enjoy bubble fun in the park. Other activities offered throughout the afternoon will include carnival games with prizes, a petting zoo and an interactive DJ.
All egg hunts and event activities will be free and open to the public, and the Sugar Land Lion’s Club will sell refreshments from the pavilion at the park.
