Spring Egg Hunt Adventure

Saturday, April 3rd
10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
FREE
City of Upland Parks

Hop from park to park in the City of Upland to hunt for Spring wooden eggs created by The Sawdust Factory during the Upland Recreation and Community Services Spring Egg Hunt Adventure!

At each park stop, find the wood Spring egg, read the clue for additional stops at other parks, and collect Spring Bunny Slips along the way.  Be sure to hold on to the Spring Bunny Slips to turn in at the end of your adventure.

Approximately nine wood Spring eggs will be hidden throughout various Upland parks. Find a minimum of four Spring eggs, collect the Spring Bunny Slips, then visit Magnolia Park and the Spring Bunny as the last stop.   At Magnolia Park, your Spring Bunny Slips will be handed to the Spring Bunny (on a drive-through basis) in exchange for a prize basket, the chance to win a golden egg, and an additional prize for each golden egg.

Two-hundred baskets will be available, on a first-come, first-serve basis. As a special treat, the Spring Bunny will be available for socially distanced photos!

This is bound to be a popular event...be sure to start early!!!

On Thursday, April 1st, stop back by here to find a printable list of clues!

Co-Sponsored by Upland Recreation & Community Services, Upland Foothill-Kiwanis, and Canvas Church, Upland.
