Due to COVID-19, the Takoma Park Recreation Department will again offer an alternative to our traditional Egg Hunt for 2022. We will host our “Eggstravaganza Event” again this year.  The Eggstravaganza will provide a fun outing for families and you may visit a place you have never been to before.

Get your baskets and map ready to solve clues. Determine the local businesses based on the clue, stop by and say the magic words to store staff “Hippity Hop”. You will get an egg filled with treats. Businesses are all around town and in some cases right outside the City limits. Some eggs have a special note inside, so don’t wait to open them!

Important Notes

  • This is not a race so no need to zip around town, instead stay and grab something to eat, shop a good sale etc.
  • Please obey all transportation/parking laws.
  • Also please follow the particular business established COVID procedures.


Date:    2023 dates TBD


Ages:    2-8 years old with parent participation

Cost:    Free
