SANTA BARBARA, CA (March 11, 2015)— Eggstravaganza at Chase Palm Park is the biggest egg hunt in town for toddlers to 8-year-olds and is anticipated with great enthusiasm by local families every year. Egg hunters are organized by age group into four separate hunt areas at the Great Meadow in Chase Palm Park. Families interested in a more intimate hunt are invited to Harding Elementary School. Participants need to bring a basket and keen eyes to gather plenty of chocolate and plastic eggs, some with a few surprises.
Working in cooperation with the City of Santa Barbara’s Parks and Recreation Department, the Police Officers and Fire Fighters Associations fund this annual event. Firefighters bring a fire engine to Chase Palm Park and give tours and pass out hats and stickers. The Police Officers are also present and always have a surprise or two. Families are encouraged to arrive early and bring cameras or phones to take a photo with the Bunny. No RSVP is needed, but news, updates, and photos will be posted to the Facebook event at bit.ly/SBEggstravaganza2015.
High School and community volunteers who wish to earn community service should be at Casa Las Palmas, 323 E. Cabrillo Blvd., on Saturday, April 4 at 8:30am for an orientation and to assist with the event at Chase Palm Park.
