THORNTON, CO… Thornton’s Easter Egg Scramble is a crazy, colorful kid scramble like no other in the metro area. At the sound of a horn, children in four age groups scramble for plastic Easter eggs containing prizes and candy. The entire event lasts only a few minutes, making it a fun opportunity not-to-be-missed!
The fun happens Saturday, April 15, at Thornton Community Park, Thornton Parkway and York Street. Mr. and Mrs. Bunny arrive at 9:30 a.m. to welcome the children, then at 10 a.m. sharp the scramble starts, ending at 10:03 a.m.
Children up to age eight are invited to participate. Each age group (walking-2, 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8) will have their own Easter Egg Scramble. Children should bring their own baskets to collect eggs and candy.
Parking is available at Community Park, Thornton Parkway and York Street, the Community Building, 2141 E. 95th Ave., the Community Center, 2211 Eppinger Blvd., and on side streets. This is a very popular event and parking spaces go fast, so arrive early. There is no event parking at the Church of God 7th Day, Eppinger Boulevard and Gaylord Street.
There is no rain date. Call 720-977-5908 the morning of the event for weather-related information. If the event is cancelled due to bad weather, candy will be handed out at the Community Building.
