The Joint Was Jumping – or Rather “Hopping”

Spring Eggstravaganza

Fun was the order of the day at Santee Lakes as hundreds of people gathered for the Spring Eggstravaganza.  From egg hunts to rides to food and music, there was something for everyone there.  Although the day was focused on kids, all ages enjoyed the activities as parents helped young children with their egg hunts and grandparents lifted little ones up to see better.  The day was put on by the City of Santee and Padre Dam’s Santee Lakes, with support from a number of local businesses and help from numerous volunteers.

Rather than try to describe the day, I will let pictures do that…

The big draw for the day was the egg hunt area.  Here dozens wait in line to cross over to “Egg Hunt Island.”

Finally, over the bridge to the egg fields.

The day was a success, thanks in great part to the sponsoring businesses, who were suitably acknowledged.


And also big thanks to all the wonderful volunteers.
