Easter Egg-stravaganza set for Saturday, April 8
The Town of Denton Parks & Recreation along with area churches will host the 2017 Easter Egg-stravaganza in Harrison Park. It is a fun filled, FREE event for all the local children. This year the Easter Eggstravaganza is scheduled for Saturday, April 8 from 12-2pm. Activities will include: Egg Drop, Egg Hunt for the little ones, Egg Decorating, Face Painting, Egg Relay and Egg Toss, Guess the Jelly Beans Jar, Egg/Prize Trade in Booth, a Cake Walk, and of course the Easter Bunny will be there for pictures!

Once again this year the eggs will drop from the sky with assistance from the Silver Valley and Denton Fire Departments. The egg drop is for children 5 and up. The egg drop will begin promptly at 12 p.m. Over 5,000 eggs will be dropped into Harrison Park that children will exchange for prize bags. Special “”Golden Eggs” will earn special prizes. Every child participating in the egg drop will receive an Easter Goody Bag regardless of how many eggs they collect.

NEW this year for ages 4 and under eggs will be hidden in the playground area of Harrison Park for the children to hunt. These eggs are filled with various candies, and prizes and the children will keep these eggs instead of turning in for prize bag.

Other activities offered throughout the afternoon will include egg decorating, a cakewalk, and games such as the egg toss, the bunny hop race, and the egg relay, and kids can enter their guess on the number of jellybeans and possibly win the whole jar, and parents - don’t forget your cameras! The Easter Bunny has agreed to stop in for a visit with the children and will be available for photo ops.

The whole event, including all activities, is completely FREE. Please note that the Easter Egg-stravaganza would not be possible without our generous sponsors. Special Thanks to the following churches for their help: Denton Wesleyan Church, Central UMC, Pentecostals of Denton Church, Siloam UMC, Clear Springs UMC. The Denton Orator is also sponsoring this event.
