When the organizers of the new Decatur Parks & Recreation EggStravaganza began planning, little did they know the event would potentially break records for the State of Alabama’s Largest Easter Egg Hunt.
Event planners Kellie Sims and Julianne Lowman have partnered with several sponsors to ensure all kids who attend are kept busy with free activities, and receive a plethora of goodies – but little did they know Epic Church of Decatur was also planning an event of their own – and on the same day. When Sims invited Epic to participate in the EggStravaganza, they not only wanted to be involved, they moved their event from Point Mallard Park to Ingalls Pavilion to join forces. Epic Church is contributing 40,000 filled, plastic eggs to add to the 5,000 eggs already donated by the Decatur/ Morgan County Convention and Visitors Bureau. Those 5,000 will be dropped from atop Decatur Fire Department’s extended ladder truck – totaling 45,000 eggs for kids to retrieve. In addition, Epic Church is also donating 200 razor-type scooters to join the other prizes to be won on at the free event on March 23, at Ingalls Pavilion from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
