A football field full of easter eggs is every kids dream… and a heck of a lot of work for the Easter Bunny! Thankfully, the Easter Bunny has some help from the Alerus Center staff to fill its 100 yards of turf with 20,000 brightly colored eggs.
This Saturday, March 30th from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM kids ages two through eight will swarm the Alerus Center arena filling their baskets at the 10th Annual Easter Egg Scramble. The kiddos won’t have to search too hard as thousands of eggs cover nearly every square inch of the arena’s main floor. Kids are divided into age groups, the youngest get first pick, and given a set amount of time to carry their baskets out onto the floor and collect their share of eggs filled with candy and small prizes.
For families staying in town for the holiday or guests traveling to Grand Forks, this is a must attend event. Can you imagine your little one’s face as they walk into the giant area and are dazzled by thousands of shining, bright eggs, all their’s for the taking? The look is priceless and the fun is totally worth the sugar buzz you will be taming on the drive home.
Eggs are not the only thing that will fill the area. Kids games, face painting, prizes, and an appearance by the Easter Bunny are just a few of the many activities families can enjoy while at the Egg Scramble.
This year the Egg Scramble is especially appealing as the snow and cool weather will likely keep families from having outdoor Easter egg hunts of their own. It’s a nice way to still honor your family tradition of an easter egg hunt without having kids, cousins, and friends overturning lamps and furniture to find eggs hidden in your living room!
Saturday isn’t the only day of fun for kids at the Alerus Center. Families can also drop in Friday, March 29th from Noon to 8:00 PM to enjoy games and prizes of all kinds.
On Saturday, games and activities will be held throughout the day from 9AM-1PM with the following specific times dedicated to egg collecting for each age group:
Ages 2-3 @ 9:30 AM
Ages 4-5 @ 10:30 AM
Ages 6-8 @ 11:30 AM
Tickets are $5 for kids. Adults are and children age two and under are free.
