The Great San Marino Egg Hunt
POSTED MARCH 23, 2021
The free, vehicle-based event on April 3 will include eight stops across San Marino.
A reimagined, vehicle-based egg hunt will see families traverse the town with a riddle-based map as their only guide. Their objective? To secure one of 10 special eggs containing golden tickets that can be exchanged for EGGS-traordinary prizes including giant chocolate bunnies, gift baskets, gift cards and more.
This year’s retooled edition of the community’s annual egg hunt is geared toward children ages 2-12 and was designed in compliance with social distancing guidelines. It will take place Saturday, April 3, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Families who opt to participate can begin their journey between 9 and 11 a.m. at Stoneman School (1560 Pasqualito Dr.), where they will receive their riddle-based map along with a complimentary basket for stowing their collected goodies.
From there, the journey will continue on a bunny trail through town as families use the map to discover seven other stops that unlock access to surprises like books, candy, toys and more. Along the way, kids will want to stay on the lookout for Mr. and Mrs. Bunny, who have promised to make special appearances.
For the first time ever, the hunt will incorporate local philanthropic organizations such as the Chinese Club of San Marino, the San Marino Rotary Club, East Meets West and the San Marino Community Church, all of whom will share in operating the various stops.
“Even a pandemic can’t stop a tradition as beloved as San Marino’s egg hunt,” said Mayor Ken Ude. “With a little creativity and a lot of support from our community partners, we’ve ensured this year’s hunt won’t soon be forgotten—in fact, it might even become one of our most memorable yet.”
Organizers have planned for an estimated 500 participants. Supplies may be limited depending on turnout, so families are encouraged to start the hunt early.
