Due to COVID-19, the Takoma Park Recreation Department will again offer an alternative to our traditional Egg Hunt. 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!
- 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: Friday and Saturday, April 15 & 16 rain or shine
Time: 12:00 – 3:00 pm each day
Ages: 2-8 years old with parent participation
Use the below clues as a family to find the next location! Each location will have an egg in their window with the Recreation Department logo to signify their participation. If you are stumped click on the image above for the answers. Each different row is a different business.
