Englewood Kids Enjoy the Great Egg Scramble

easter eggsA little bout of snow could not keep the children from their egg hunt. Despite the event being postponed and moved, Englewood’s March 26 Great Egg Scramble occurred this past Saturday, to the enjoyment of everyone involved. Rather than taking place at Miller Field this year, the event moved to Englewood Recreational Center.

This was the first time the Great Egg Scramble occurred indoors. To prepare for the event, volunteers transformed the gymnasium’s floors into an egg hunt wonderland. The volleyballs and basketballs disappeared and plastics eggs, toys, and candy took their place.

To accommodate everyone, the event was split into two sessions. In each session, there were two clearly marked areas for the different age groups. The first session included children between the ages of one and four. In the second session, kids between the ages five and eight participated. Volunteers quickly replenished the goodies after each term.

While the crowd was smaller in comparison to the outdoor event, everyone had a good time. Organizers believe that almost 2,000 plastic eggs were hidden, as well as a variety of toys and candy. Approximately 200 families attended. Parents watched their children sweep up the treats in less than five minutes.

A parent from Kansas who participated said,

They [kids] are all smiles today. I think it is great the city does this for its people. I wish our town in Kansas would do something like this.
