The 2024 EGGStravaganza Spring Festival in Carlsbad

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE 3/29/2024

DUE TO THE FORECASTED RAIN FOR SATURDAY THE 30TH THE EGGSTRAVAGANZA SPRING FESTIVAL WILL NOW BE A DRIVE-THROUGH EVENT - A HOP'N GO. YOU CAN STAY IN YOUR CAR AND THE EASTER BUNNY WILL PASS EGGS AND TREATS THROUGH THE CAR WINDOWS SO YOU STAY DRY.

IN THE EVENT OF EXTREME WEATHER THE EVENT MAY BE CANCELED. CONFIRMATION OF THE EVENT, OR CANCELATION, WILL BE ANNOUNCED BY 8 AM SATURDAY ON THE EVENT PAGE.

 

March is a busy month, with Daylight Saving Time beginning on the 10th, the 1st day of spring on the 19th, and Easter on the 31st!

 

The popular Carlsbad EGGStravaganza Spring Festival 2024 will take place the day before Easter, Saturday March 30th. The festival will be held, as is the tradition, in Carlsbad’s beautiful Poinsettia Community Park from 10 am until 1 pm.

 

Poinsettia Community Park is located at 6600 Hidden Valley Road, south of Palomar Airport Road.

 

Carlsbad's EGGStravaganza offers plenty of fun, with multiple activities including cookie decorating, face painting, “Soak the Bunny,” crafts, and a fun zone. Kids will enjoy Carlsbad’s largest Egg Scramble (Activity Cards are required) which is ongoing from 10:30 until 12:30 (or until the candy-filled eggs run out).

 

Easter eggs

 

There are 2 competitive fields. One field is for kids ages 6 and older, and the other is for children 5 and younger. EGGStravaganza also provides a non-competitive field for younger children, those with special needs, and as a place for photos.

 

Fun Zone Wristbands and Activity Cards ($5 each) should be purchased at one of the following community center locations between 8 am and 5 pm Monday through Friday. Online and phone registrations are not needed. There will be no refunds or replacements if wristbands or activity cards are lost or not brought to the event.

 

Wristbands are per person, but activity cards can be shared among multiple children. You can purchase wristband and activity cards in advance at these locations:

 

Pine Avenue Community Center, 3209 Harding Street

Calavera Hills Community Center, 2997 Glasgow Drive

Stagecoach Community Center, 3420 Camino de los Coches

Alga Norte Aquatic Center, 6565 Alicante Road

 

You will be able to buy Wristbands and Activity Cards at the event but there may be a line.

 

There will be food and beverages available for purchase, too.

Wow what fun events and I love the opportunity to have two fields, I remember as a kid when there were a couple who were too ambitious or should I say selfish.... and many with special needs would miss out, this is truly awesome Endre

I agree. And I think it's a great idea - there are unfortunately some (kids and their parents) who may be too "competitive" Endre Barath, Jr. 

It should be a fun event for all who want to participate.

Hello Jeff - thank you for this post as I had it in my mind that this weekend was time for that evil twice-a-year clock changing event.  I am sure I would have realized my mistake sooner or later, but you helped keep me up to date.  ⏰

Happy March.

Good morning Jeff. The EGGStravaganza breakdown is well thought out. All children a participate. A well planned event. Enjoy if you go.

No we won't be attending unless the grandkids are around, but that's unlikley - they have their own activities happening up in LA, Wayne Martin 

It's a pretty popular event and has been for years. Hopefully we will be done with all the rain by then.

Hi Hannah Williams 

No, it's not new and I think I write about it most years, but have missed some. It's been around for 10 years or so.

Jeff I remember you blogging about this event last year.  It should draw a big crowd.

It's a popular event George Souto  and has been around for a while. From the photos I have seen it's very well attended. No doubt hundreds of eggs get collected.

Have a good weekend!

Hi Jeff- I can't believe it's THAT time of year again. The Eggstravaganza sounds like a fun community event!!!   I'd love to see the cookie decorating!

Hi Kathy Streib 

It IS hard to believe Easter is the end of the month...just 4 weeks from this Sunday.  I could certainly enjoy watching the cookie decorating...and of course eating some.

Jeff Dowler, CRS - These events are absolutely wonderful, especially for children who should all have equal opportunities to enjoy and participate in an Easter Egg hunt. I love to hear the sound laugher coming from a child. It is music to my ears. Seeing children in pastels among the pretty Easter Eggs makes great photos too.

Hi Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  It brings back memories of when our daughters were young and went on egg hunts, and the few times we've seen the grandkids enjoy them.

It's certainly a fun and colorful time of year!
