Eastman ‘Eggstravaganza’ brings in the crowds

The Eastman Nature Center at Elm Creek Park was packed with perhaps record crowds as the newly renovated center hosted hundreds of little egg-hunters and their parents Friday, March 29.

So many people attended the event that parking overflowed along the entire driveway leading up to the center.

And why not, with so many offerings. Three Rivers Parks hosted the event with games, live bunnies, crafts, face-painting, treats, egg-dying, egg hunt, and of course a visit from a giant rabbit. Activities were indoors and outdoors.

What would an “Eggstravaganza” be without a visit from a large bunny? Enjoying their close-up are Joe and Diana Dawson along with daughter, Malia. Who knew sand and eggs could be such a good match? These children figured out the fun in one of many activities offered at the “Eggstravaganza.” Face painter Olivia Xiong works her craft on young Jordan palmer. The Eastman Nature Center was buzzing with activity and crowds for the “Eggstravaganza.”
