We created the Imagine Church Easter Egg Drop as a local event to serve our community. To that end, a pre-registration code gets mailed out to Westfield residents in our Imagine Spring postcard mailer. Watch for it to hit your mailboxes between March 19-25. If there are still spots available after pre-registration, registration will open for everyone else. Registration will close as soon as we reach max capacity. There will be no on-site registration. This year’s event will be limited to the first 800 children to register. Questions?

  • Imagine Friends & Family Pre-Registration: March 15-20
  • Westfield Residents Pre-Registration: March 23-25
  • Open Registration: March 26 – 31 (no registration code necessary)
We feel your pain! Because this is a free event put on by Imagine Church and staffed by volunteers, we can only accommodate a limited number of children (this year we’ve expanded to 800).

Every year the event fills up faster and faster (last year we maxed out just 36 hours after registration opened!) and there’s no good way of giving everyone a chance to get in without people getting left out. As we continue to grow we’ll add more spots.

There will be no on-site registration the day of the egg-drop.

Yes!  A full size helicopter, compliant with all laws and permits, will drop thousands of plastic eggs onto the fields before the egg hunt! But don’t worry, everyone will be standing in a safe area away from where the eggs are being dropped.  After the eggs are dropped, the kids (in age-appropriate zones) will be allowed to gather them up and redeem them for candy at our Candy Stations.

Yes, every child must be registered before the event begins.

There will be no on-site registration the day of the event.

In the event of inclement weather, please check the web site for details about rescheduling and/or location change. If you are already registered, we will email you with any date or venue changes.
We have split the Easter Egg hunt into three age-appropriate zones:

  • ages 1-3
  • age 4-6,
  • age 7-10.

Each age group will be separated from the other age groups so younger children will be just fine. We will also have specific activities (such as the toddler zone inflatable) geared towards kids 3 and under.

No, there is no candy inside the eggs. To ensure each child receives equal candy, all gathered eggs can be redeemed for candy at one of two “Candy Stations.”  Only children with event registration hand stamps will be able to redeem eggs for candy.

Only parents of 1-3 year olds will be allowed to help their children on the field.

Parents from the other age groups will be able to watch and encourage their children from the boundary lines, just a few feet from the actual egg hunt field.

Our amazing Imagine Church Egg Drop Volunteers will ensure your children stay safe and have fun during their hunt.  (This will also ensure over-zealous parents don’t grab all the eggs and ruin the event for other children, wink wink).

We are staggering the hunt times.  This provides ultimate safety and ensures a parent can give full attention to their children in each age specific zone.  The staggered hunt times are:

Ages 1-3 @ 2:30 PM

Ages 4-6 @ 2:45 PM

Ages 7-10 @ 3:00 PM

There is plenty of parking available this year with our new location at Grand Park.
