Editor’s Note: The following is a sponsored post from the First Baptist Church of Geneva.
Today we want to tell you about an event that fits well on both of those lists: The Easter Eggstravaganza at First Baptist Church of Geneva. The Easter Eggstravaganza is being held the morning of Saturday, April 8, at the church’s West Campus at 3435 Keslinger Road and is an event for the entire family!
Families can arrive anytime between 9:30 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. and should allow about 45 minutes for the experience.
Your family will travel together on an indoor scavenger hunt around the church complex to find some of the 15,000 candy-filled eggs that are hidden away. This is not a race, so it’s a much more relaxing experience than most egg hunts. Whether you arrive at 9:30 or 10:30 a.m. every one will get the same number of eggs!
There will also be drawings for fun prizes, including two grand prizes that are much too big to fit in an Easter basket. (Spoiler: They’re bicycles.)
But what really sets this event apart is an interactive element showing the miracle of Easter.
The interactive experience will take your family through the events of the very first Easter. Families will be greeted by costumed characters who will convey each story. Participants will make and wave palm branches, try a traditional Passover food, hear from a Roman soldier and others sharing the good news of the resurrection.
The Easter Eggstravaganza is free, and it is open to all members of the community. There is no need to register, and you can find more info here or by calling 630-232-7068.
A few other tips:
- Parking will be plentiful.
- Free donuts, milk and coffee will be served. Yum!
- Don’t arrive right at 9:30 a.m. The crowds will clear around 10 a.m.
- Strollers are not necessary, but there are elevators and will be available for use.
- Kids from toddlers through elementary-age will have fun. This isn’t just a hunt for little ones!
