Calvary East Lake Egg Drop
This will be like no other Easter Egg Hunt as over 15,000 eggs will be dropped from a helicopter. Festivities will include food, giant slides, candy and much more! This will be a great family-friendly event.
Event Parking - Please use the East Lake High School Stadium Parking lot located off of Silver Eagle Drive. Special needs parking will be available on the campus of Calvary East Lake. Follow the signs along East Lake Road to locate event parking.
To avoid long lines, online registration is strongly encouraged. Walk up registration will be available on the day of the event. Each child MUST be registered. On the day of the event each child will receive a wrist band for identification purposes and safety.This will help us contact a parent in case of injury or if a child becomes separated from their parent/guardian. All parents must remain on campus while your child participates in the event. (Only 5th graders and below are permitted to participate in the Egg Hunt)
When does the Egg Hunt start?
The Helicopter will arrive at 12:15 p.m. The drop zone will be off limits until the egg hunt begins and will be marked off according to grades/ages. Prior to the start of the egg drop/hunt an announcement will be made to ensure all children are in their designated area. Volunteers will ensure that no one enters the drop zone until the helicopter has cleared and the hunt is deemed safe to begin.
Where do we get the candy?
The eggs WILL NOT contain any candy or prizes. The eggs your child collects will be turned in at the candy exchange booths where our volunteers will exchange the empty eggs for candy and prizes. Each child will receive the same amount of candy regardless of the number of eggs they collect .
What do we do until the Egg Drop/Hunt begins?
Feel free to enjoy all of the activities we have provided. Bounce Houses, Slides and the Easter Family Photo Area are all FREE! Food vendors will have items available for purchase.
Please report to the First Aid/Security Tent or see a volunteer for assistance.
