Please mark your calendar for the Second Annual Hyde Park Egg Scramble at Shipe Park on Saturday April 19th, 2014 10:30am-12:30pm, sponsored by Grande Communications. This HPNA event is open to everyone in the neighborhood! There will be popcorn, snow cones, and cotton candy as well as many fun activities including egg hunts, a bounce house, and obstacle course! All activities and refreshments are free to all Hyde Parkers who attend the event! Last year’s egg scramble was a lot of fun and we hope to make this year’s event even more festive!
You may be asking yourself, “What exactly is an ‘egg scramble’ anyway?” It’s basically a traditional Easter egg hunt; the only difference is that you provide the eggs yourself for your child’s age group. Here’s how it will work. The egg hunt will be divided into the following three age groups: under 3 years old, 3 & 4 year olds, and 5 years old & up. If your child is going to participate in the egg hunt festivities, please drop off 1 dozen plastic eggs filled with age appropriate treats any time between Saturday, April 12th and Friday, April 18th in the bins marked by age group on the front porch at the following houses:
Rossomando/Williams House at 4307 Avenue F
– OR –
Luyet/Cabada House at 4809 Eilers
Each age group will have its own area marked in the park with colored flagging tape. The younger age groups will be “hunting” in the flat sports field area of the park. The oldest age group will be “hunting” in the area outside the log cabin and pool area. The playground, swings, and basketball court will still be open to everyone not attending the Egg Scramble event.
We still need assistance from volunteers for set up and during the event. Questions, comments, or interest in volunteering, please Michelle, whose number can be found in The Pecan Press. Mark your calendars now for the second installment of this new tradition for our neighborhood!
