Egg Hunt

About the Egg Hunt


Each Spring the Takoma Park Recreation Department hosts an egg hunt at Ed Wilhelm Field (behind Piney Branch Elementary School).

This FREE event is always an egg-citing time! Egg Hunt age categories include:

  • 2 years and younger
  • 3-4 years
  • 5-6 years and
  • 7-8 years

Don’t forget to bring your basket to collect all the eggs!  Each age group will have one golden egg hidden among the eggs.

We will have games, crafts and more fun and a special visit from Mr. Bunny.


Recycle the Eggs After the Event

The majority of our eggs are made from recycled baby bottles. Continue the recycling by turning in your eggs before you leave, you will get a ticket to win a raffle prize that day.

Or return your eggs to the Community Center any time the building is open the next week so that we can reuse them next year.


Golden Egg Winners

One metallic golden egg will be placed in each age group. Find the golden egg and redeem it for a special prize at the tent.
