Keep Your Peepers Peeled for Colorful Eggs at the Annual Eggstravaganza Easter Egg Hunt

March 23, 2016 2:30 pm

It's that time of year again! The Easter holiday is almost upon us, and that means the return of the annual Eggstravaganza Easter egg hunt. People of all ages are invited to join in the festivities at this fun and exciting event taking place near Northwest.

This year's Eggstravaganza will be held on Saturday, March 26 at the Chesapeake City Park from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Egg hunts will be divided into two age groups for children 4 and under and for children 5 through 8, making it easier for little ones (and their parents) to gather eggs with children their own age. Participants are encouraged to bring their own Easter baskets for the hunt, and once all of the eggs are gathered, they can even have their photos taken with Peter Cottontail himself!

March 26, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

To entertain older kids or even a first date, take a journey aboard the Atlantic Explorer. This guided tour takes participants out to sea on Virginia’s cold, coastal waters, and you’ll have fun searching for dolphins, whales, seals and even seabirds.

Nature Play

For the smallest visitors, the Nature Play activity will show you how to make lots of water-themed crafts and experiments that you can later make at home. Best of all, these activities are fun to do come rain or shine.
