2024 Easter Eggstravaganza coming to Joyner Park March 23

Monday, February 26, 2024 - 4:06pm

The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources (PRCR) Department will host its first-ever Easter Eggstravaganza on Saturday, March 23, from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road.

Presented by Bumgarner & Martin Orthodontics and Skylift Garage Doors, this free family event will offer a fresh approach to the traditional egg hunt. This year, instead of different age groups “scrambling” for eggs at assigned times, children and their families are invited to stroll along the “Bunny Trail” and collect their eggs any time between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

The festivities will also feature DJ Royal pumping out fun tunes, a roaming magician, bubble artist, Easter-themed crafts, and – of course – a visit from the Easter Bunny.

Registration is not required, but participants should come with baskets in hand ready to fill at designated stops along the Bunny Trail.

The following local businesses and organizations have generously contributed to the 2024 Wake Forest Easter Eggstravaganza: Bumgarner and Martin Orthodontics, Skylift Garage Doors, Primrose School of Heritage Wake Forest, Girl Scouts NC Coastal Pines, Crossroads Fellowship, Goldfish Swim School, and The College at Southeastern.

In the event of inclement weather on the day of the event, organizers will announce a decision on whether to proceed as early as possible. Officials will provide weather-related updates on the Town website, Nextdoor site, and Facebook page. Smart phone users who have downloaded the Town of Wake Forest app will also receive a push notification message concerning any schedule changes.
