At this year’s Eggstreme Egg Hunt, everyone will be looking up at the sky instead of down to the ground. Coral Gables will be celebrating spring with its first-ever helicopter egg drop.
On Saturday, Mar. 30, thousands of colorful, plastic eggs will be dropped by helicopter onto the Youth Center field as children watch from the perimeter. Simultaneous egg hunts will take place at 10 a.m. at five parks in the city, but the Youth Center is the only one featuring a helicopter egg drop. Immediately following the egg hunts, residents can enjoy a free concert, and carnival games and rides. Residents in close proximity to the Youth Center may hear the helicopter overhead at approximately 9:50 a.m. for a few minutes.
Participating parks are:
War Memorial Youth Center, 405 University Dr.;
Jaycee Park, 1230 Hardee Rd.; Phillips Park, 90 Menores Ave.; Salvadore Park, 1120 Andalusia Ave., and Sunrise Harbor Park, 25 Sunrise Ave.
