'Eggstreme' Easter Egg Drop in Vero Beach Saturday
Vero Beach - April 16: The Pathway Church is taking it to the “eggstreme” this Easter hosting a free, fun, festive, community-building event on Saturday, April 16, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
A helicopter, donated and flown by community supporter Paris Air, will drop 50,000 plastic eggs onto a grassy field next to the church at 1105 58th Avenue in Vero Beach. Kids will hunt for eggs by age group beginning at 10:15 a.m. with loads of candy, music, food trucks, carnival games, bounce houses, and more to round out the event. “We want kids and families to remember this experience for a lifetime,” says Brian Bennett, lead pastor for Pathway Church.
Pathway staff and volunteers are planning for more than 5,000 to attend this history-making Easter event.
Registration is required and may be completed online at www.treasurecoasteggdrop.com, or on-site prior to entry. Parking will be available at Pathway Church and additional parking with shuttle service will be available from Cornerstone Church (5950 12thStreet) and Freedom Church (455 58th Avenue SW), both locations nearby the event.
Kids ages 0 to 2 years old will hunt at 10:15 a.m.; ages 3-4 years will hunt at 10:45 a.m.; ages 5-6 years will hunt at 11:15 a.m.; ages 7-8 years will hunt at 11:45 a.m.; and ages 9 years and older will hunt at 12:15 p.m. The helicopter will fly over and drop eggs for each age group to ensure plenty of fun and eggs for everyone. For any kids unable to make their assigned drop times, a final hunt will take place at 12:45 p.m. The eggs will be redeemed for candy and prizes. Five gold eggs will be dropped for each group. Find the golden eggs and receive a special gift.
“Bringing the community together to have some fun and connect with neighbors really for the first time in a couple of years since the pandemic is very important to us,” Bennett says. “The Church isn’t a building. We want to reach out into the neighborhoods and support, encourage, and love all people. This epic event is a great first step.”
Bennett joined Pathway 18 months ago to lead the church into a new season of outreach and growth.
The event is being sponsored by State Farm, Vero Fitness, Christian FM, Viking Auto, Village Market, Café 66, Roofing & Reconstruction Contractors of America, and Stephen’s Printing.
