[Wentzville, Missouri — April 6, 2022] Now that spring has begun, Wentzville Parks and Recreation is looking
forward to the annual Easter EGGstravaganza. This beloved event is a wonderful way to kick off spring in
The festivities begin early on Saturday, April 9 with the Egg Hunt starting at 9 a.m. at Heartland Park. Prior to
2020, this event was offered on large Community Fields covered with eggs. A horn would sound and children
would excitedly dash onto their age-appropriate field to gather as many eggs as they could. However, in 2021,
we introduced a new format where families could reserve their own 20-foot-by-20-foot private field section for
their children to hunt with whomever they chose to share it with. Based on feedback from last year, we are
pleased to offer this year’s Egg Hunt with both Community and Private Field formats so families can register for
the experience they prefer. Some eggs will contain slips of paper that can be exchanged for exciting prizes! The
Easter Bunny will be there to take photos with families from 9-11 a.m. Attendees are also invited to enjoy the
inflatable slide, play on the all-inclusive Jake’s Field of Dreams Playground and enjoy the beautiful walking
trails around the park.
The day wraps up with the Bone Hunt at Rotary Park. Beginning at noon, families with dogs will be able to
participate in a hunt of their own for treats and toys. There will be a drawing for a prize and every pup will get a
goody bag to take home for their canine companions to enjoy. Proof of canine vaccinations is required in
order to participate.
