ECA Annual Egg Hunt

Saturday, April 15, 10:00 AM • Jeff Green “Choo Choo” Park, Tahoma and Algonquin

Welcome spring with sweet surprises.

bunnies The magician’s catchphrase, “now you see it, now you don’t” is an apt description for the ECA’s Annual Egg Hunt. At 10 AM a sea of 7,000 colored eggs blankets Jeff Green “Choo Choo” Park. Five minutes later the eggs are gone and those egg hunters are enjoying their treasures.

Forget about taxes. Mingle with your neighbors while the clock counts down. Rain or shine, grass or snow, the Hunt starts promptly at 10 AM. The treat-filled eggs will entice your children and grandchildren to new feats of dexterity and speed. You’ll watch those nine-and-under hunters scoop up the gleaming treasures and wonder why they can’t pick up their toys with the same devotion.

Once the harvesting has finished, the unveiling begins. The bounty seems endless. One lucky child in each age group will find a golden egg entitling them to a special treat at the prize booth.

Bring your camera. Capture a photo of your kids with the Easter Bunny.

Neighbors, swing by the park, grab a cup of coffee, and watch the kids spring into action. The fun begins at 10 AM at Tahoma and Algonquin and, thanks to ECA members, is open to the neighborhood. Enjoy the excitement and welcome spring to Edgebrook.
