What Is The Special EggStravaganza?

The Special EggStravaganza is a unique Easter egg hunt catering to children with special needs. Each of the four egg hunts offered will have dedicated areas accommodating specific special needs.

 Quiet Egg Hunt

Children with sensory impairments such as autism, Aspergers, or ADHD will hunt for eggs in a quiet environment, free of distractions and loud noises.

 Beeping Egg Hunt

Visually impaired children will hunt for eggs in an open environment with beepers inside each egg, allowing them to hear where they can be found.

 Magnetic Egg Hunt

Children with wheel chairs and mobile restrictions will have a dedicated area allowing them to hunt for their eggs using a magnetic pole.

 General Egg Hunt

Lastly, we will have a general hunt for friends and family. Be sure to come out and join us for this amazing community event. We can't wait to see you there!

In 2014, our first year ever for this event, nearly 500 people came together and served many very happy children with special needs. For many children this was their first time experiencing Easter egg hunting.
