We're all yolks ...

For the past 10 years TBPAC has been home to Magic 94.9FM’s Eggstravaganza. It’s a free family Easter event held here the Saturday before Easter with free breakfast, activities for the kids and an egg hunt. But it doesn’t require a calendar for the TBPAC staff to know it’s time for Eggstravaganza. We know by all the “egg jokes” in emails. Need an egg-xample? I can give you an egg-cellent one (get it?). Yes ... they are rather silly and corny, but it’s tradition and who am I to fight tradition.

Each year we continue to be amazed at the number of people that come out for this event. To give you an idea, this past year the staff served breakfast to about 1200 and that doesn’t count the people who were “bringing food back to their families who are sitting down.” To give you another image, we put 25,000 plastic Easter eggs on the lawn in Curtis Hixon Park. The egg hunt starts at 11 a.m. It’s over, no joke, by 11:01 a.m.

Check out a couple pictures from this year’s event.
