A new location and more Easter eggs are in store for visitors to the second annual Easter Eggstravaganza, a kid-friendly event hosted by Decatur Parks and Recreation and Epic Church. This year’s event will be held in a new location, Point Mallard Park, allowing it to offer more Easter eggs, games, and activities.
Visitors are in for an egg-citing time beginning at 11 a.m. There will be activity booths, contests, visits with the Easter Bunny, and entertainment provided by Miss Point Mallard Katie Malone, singer/songwriter Bill Crosby from Nashville, and a karate demonstration from Webster’s Karate.
The highlight of this year’s event is an Easter Egg Hunt with 50,000 eggs, which begins promptly at 2 p.m. on the Spirit of America Field. Children will be divided into four age groups--2-4 years old, 5-7 years old, 8-10 years old, 11 years and older, as well as a group for those with special needs.
For kids in Pre-K through 5th grade, there is a free coloring contest, with every participant receiving a prize. Visit the Decatur Parks & Recreation’s Facebook page and go to Events to download the coloring sheet and bring your masterpiece to the Point Mallard Expo between 11 a.m. and noon on the day of the event.
The free event will also offer a variety of egg-citing activities including inflatables, face painting, sack races, spoon and egg races, egg toss games, making crafts, and a special appearance by the Easter Bunny who will be available for pictures. The Pepsi wagon will be there with drinks and popcorn.
Parents are encouraged to bring a basket or bag for their children to collect eggs and other goodies. All activities are held at the Point Mallard Expo except for the Easter Egg Hunt, which will take place on the Spirit of America Field. Admission is free.
