The event features continuous egg hunts for children up to age 8. Egg hunts are staged at two zones: one for small children and another for kids from ages 4 to 8. There will also be games, carnival rides, a pony ride, a petting zoo, inflatables, face painting and crafts. Primo DJ will entertain with music and games.
Parking is $6 per vehicle. Tickets for rides and activities will be sold for $1.00 each. Egg hunt wrist bands are also $1.00 each.
Last year, more than 10,000 people attended the event, including 2,700 children who scrambled for treats at 42 egg hunts. Spring Eggstravaganza is co-sponsored by the City of Santee and the Padre Dam Municipal Water District, which operates the 190-acre preserve.
The preserve is located in Santee at 9210 Fanita Parkway. For more information, call the event hotline at (619) 258-4100 ext. 201 or visit the event page here.
