Here’s some questions and answers about the Imagine Church Easter Egg Drop:
How can I participate in this year’s Easter Egg Drop?
The Imagine Church Easter Egg Drop is free for pre-registered participants only. As soon as the pre-registration is full, the event will be closed. There will be no on-site registration. As much as we would like to have everyone join us for this awesome event, we have to limit our numbers due to space and volunteers. We know that means that every year there are many of you who can’t participate and we’re so sorry! As we continue to grow we’ll add more spots.
What are the details?
The Imagine Church Easter Egg Drop is a FREE Easter Egg Hunt open to our community for children up to age 10. This event is put on and hosted by Imagine Church.
Date: Saturday, April 19, 2014
Time: Check-In & Activities begin at 9:30 AM. The helicopter drop and age-appropriate hunts will begin at 11:00 AM
Where: Washington Woods Elementary School (directions)
What: 15,000 plastic Easter eggs will be dropped by a helicopter onto 3 age-specific areas in the fields at Washington Woods Elementary
Will there really be a helicopter dropping eggs?
Yes! A full size helicopter, compliant with all laws and permits, will drop thousands of eggs onto the fields at Washington Woods Elementary School (directions), in a safe area away from all children and adults. 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.
Do my children need to pre-register?
Yes, every child must pre-register in order to participate. Registration will open the week of April 7 and is limited so register soon in order to reserve your spot.
What if it’s raining/snowing?
In the event of inclement weather, please check the web site for details about rescheduling and/or location change. If you are pre-registered, we will email you with any date or venue changes.
I have very young children, will they get overwhelmed by the older kids?
We have split the Easter Egg hunt into three age-appropriate zones: ages 1-3, 4-6, and 7-10. Each age group will be separated from the other age groups.
Will candy actually be inside the eggs?
To ensure that all children get plenty of candy, all children will take their gathered eggs and redeem them at “Candy Stations”. Only children who are registered and have arm bands will be able to exchange eggs for candy
Will parents or guardians be allowed to gather eggs with their children?
Only parents of 1-3 year olds will be allowed to “hunt” with their children. The other age groups will hunt for their eggs with authorized and safe Imagine Church Egg Drop volunteers. Parents will be able to watch their kids, and encourage them from the boundry lines, just a few feet from the actual egg hunt field. This ensures that over-zealous parents don’t grab all the eggs and ruin the event for other children.
I have children in different age zones. How can I watch them at the same time if there are different zones for different age groups?
We are staggering the hunt times. This provides ultmate 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 @ 11:00 AM
ages 4-6 @ 11:15 AM
ages 7-10 @ 11:30 AM
Where will we park?
If you live in any of the neighborhoods surrounding the school, we would encourage you to walk to the fields if at all possible. For those of you driving to the Egg Drop, we will have parking available in the lots around the school. You will be directed to a parking spot by a parking attendant when you arrive.
