HUNTSVILLE – The Easter Bunny is riding, not hopping, into Huntsville onboard a Huntsville Fire & Rescue truck to entertain the kids at the second annual Huntsville Parks & Recreation’s Eggstravaganza at John Hunt Park. The event is April 1, from 9-11 a.m.
More than 10,000 eggs will be hidden throughout the park but bunny-eyed egg hunters should watch out for those golden eggs because they hold a special prize!
The free Easter Egg Hunt and fun bunny day will feature food trucks, face painting, inflatables, Easter-themed games and crafts, pictures with the Easter Bunny, and other special guests.
Kids can also check out the Huntsville Police Department’s Mustang Patrol Unit and enjoy being hoisted up to sit in a fire truck.
“We were blown away by the community response to last year’s Eggstravaganza,” said Parks & Recreation Director James Gossett. “We knew immediately that we wanted to make it an annual event.”
The egg hunt is open to children with special needs at 9 a.m.; children aged four and under at 9:30 a.m.; ages five through seven at 10 a.m.; and the bigger kids ages eight to 12 can hunt at 10:30 a.m.
There is plenty of free parking available at the Jaycee Community Building at 2180 Airport Road, and at the nearby Joe Davis Stadium site.
As most Huntsvillians know, the weather in April is unpredictable so in the event of rain, the Eggstravaganza will move into the Jaycee Community Building.
“We hope to see you on April 1 at this communitywide event made possible by the City of Huntsville and our supporting partners,” said Gossett. “It’s going to be a great time with family-friendly activities for everyone to enjoy.”
