Commissioner Jim Gibson is teaming up with Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, Clark County's Parks and Recreation and other community partners to host the 5th Annual "Easter Eggstravaganza" on Friday, April 19, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Whitney Park, 5712 Missouri Ave. just west of Boulder Highway.
This free, family-friendly event will feature egg hunts for children ages 2 to 12 along with face painting, candy, train rides, a bike give away, and a variety of carnival games. Sponsors include the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's Southeast Area Command's Safety Through Outreach and Prevention (STOP) program, My Father's House, Gameworks, and Anthem BlueCross BlueShield.
"This is a fun and family-friendly event that falls right at the end of spring break week," said Commissioner Gibson, whose District G includes the Whitney area. "I hope we see lots of kids and their families, and I want to thank our community partners for helping us organize this annual event."
Egg hunts for ages 2 to 4 will begin at 1 p.m.; ages 5 to 6 at 1:15pm; ages 7 to 9 at 1:30pm; and ages 10-12 years at 1:45pm. Families must register to participate in the egg hunts.
