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.:
- Calavera Hills Community Center, 2997 Glasgow Drive
- Harding Community Center, 3096 Harding Street
- Stagecoach Community Center, 3420 Camino de los Coches
- Alga Norte Community Park, 6565 Alicante Road
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.
