I am a member of the South Florida Parenting Magazine Mom-Approved Panel and received free tickets to attend this event.

South Florida Parenting Egg-a-Palooza


This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to take my family to the Egg-a-Palooza event and my kids had a great time! The first thing we did was visit all of the booths so that they could get their scavenger hunt cards stamped & possibly win an Easter basket. Then we stopped over at the bounce area, where there were 3 types of bounces. As you can imagine, my kids did not want to leave. I had to ply them with promises of games & prizes.

Then we hit up the inflatable baseball range, followed by egg hunt. The kids were allowed to collect 10 eggs each, and we found out that we picked a “special egg,” and won tickets to Dinosauria. We can’t wait to go to that.

My son tried to hold all of the eggs in his hands, but they ended up in my purse. Isabella knew right away to start loading them into a bag we had.

After the hunt, we made our way past the food trucks and headed straight for the pony. The kids just had a chance to ride a pony last weekend, so they were excited for this.

Since there were no rides on this pony, we headed back under the tented area to enjoy some performances by some very talented kids. We also entered some giveaways by the vendors and made some s’mores. We entered one contest for an Easter basket and at 4 o’clock we won!

There was so much for the kids to do at the event and they loved every minute of it. I had to drag them out as everything began closing down. The kids arrived home anxious to check out what was int he basket and in the eggs they collected. Now they are looking forward to Easter in 2 weeks.
