Carlsbad’s Eggstravaganza Spring Festival will take place on Saturday, April 15 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Poinsettia Park. The event will feature the Egg Scramble, where kids race to collect candy-filled eggs and participate in other fun activities such as face painting, crafts, games, cookie decorating, fun zones, and more. There is a six years and older competitive field and five years and younger competitive field. There is also a non-competitive field for young children, children with special needs, and for families who want to take photos together.

Eggstravaganza also highlights the Carlsbad Parks and Recreation summer camps with demonstrations and activities that children can take part in. Wrist bands and activity cards are required for some of the activities and can be purchased presale or at the event. Advance sales are available until April 14 and must be made in person at one of the following locations: Alga Norte Aquatics Center, Calavera Hills Community Center, Harding Community Center, or Stagecoach Community Center.
