Celebrate the arrival of spring at Pico Rivera’s favorite springtime celebration, the annual Easter Eggstravaganza. The event is Saturday, March 19 at Pico Park from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
As always there will be lots of “eggciting” activities for the whole family, including a magician, inflatable amusements, crafts and games, face painting and the always-popular Easter Egg Hunt. Children who find eggs containing a Golden Ticket will have the opportunity to win some “eggstra special” prizes. The Egg Hunt is divided by age groups. (See below for age group start times.)
|10:00 a.m.||3 years and Under|
|10:30 a.m.||4 to 5 Years|
|11:00 a.m.||6 to 7 Years|
|11:30 a.m.||8 to 11 Years|
|Noon||12 to 14 Years|
The Easter Egg Bunny and friends are also making an appearance and will be posing for photos throughout the event. Come with an appetite as food and refreshments will be available for purchase.
Little Racers between the ages of 3 to 5 years old will have the opportunity to race in the Tricycle Grand Prix. For a $5 entry fee, participants will have the opportunity to race in one of three age categories; 3 year olds at 11:00 a.m., 4 year olds at 11:30 a.m., and the concluding race for 5 year olds at noon. All racers will receive a participation ribbon and trophies will be awarded for those who finish in the top three in each age division. All racers must provide their own helmets.
