Allergen Friendly Easter Egg Hunt

Join the Sacramento Food Allergy Meetup group for an Allergy Free Egg Hunt Saturday April 16 at 10:30 am at William Land Park at 13th Ave. and Riverside. Please RSVP by Friday, April 15 at 3 PM.

The park is located on 13th Avenue between Riverside and Land Park Drive. The Tiny Tot Time Preschool building and the Land Park Play pool are in this area. The hunt will be just west of the fenced in playground. Please call my cell if you have any trouble finding us: 916-425-3823.

Egg Hunt Begins at 11 am. Arrive at 10:30 a.m. if you are bringing eggs.

***NEW THIS YEAR*** If you are bringing a child to the egg hunt, please bring 25 plastic eggs stuffed with stickers or small plastic toys per child. Please don't spend more than about $5 on eggs and toys.

Absolutely NO FOOD and NO CANDY please. Remember to bring a basket for collecting eggs.
If you are unable to bring stuffed eggs, please consider a $5 donation to help offset the costs of the additional eggs being provided.

Arrive at 10:30 am and plan to play with your child(ren) in the playground for about 30 minutes. My teenagers and I will hide about 200-300 eggs before 10:30 am, and we will also hide the eggs that guests bring.

Note that many of the items in the eggs will be choking hazards due to size so if you have a younger child be sure to supervise them with these items.

  1. HI! Just a friendly note from the Land Park Community Association (LPCA)! We want to be sure attendees of the allergen free egg hunt don't mistakenly participate in the annual "Great Land Park Egg Hunt & Hat Parade" (sponsored by the City of Sacramento & LPCA)that will be taking place on April 16th, in a similar location, at 10:30am. All participates ARE MORE THAN WELCOME, but our hunt will have approximately 15,000 EGGS FILLED WITH CANDY. The Land Park Egg Hunt will be near Riverside Blvd, between 12th & 13th Avenues, near the small parking area and restrooms. Festivities begin at 9:30am with face-painting and live music, at 10am with a Hat Parade/Contest, and hunts begin at 10:30am. We hope everyone enjoys the day!
