Featured in April issue and posted online April 3, 2023 / This long-time annual Naperville Jaycees tradition, now called The Great Egg Hunt, promises to be egg-citing with a count of 14,000-plus colorful eggs to be hunted. The Great Egg Hunt is planned to begin at 9AM Sat., April 8, at Frontier Park Sports Complex, located at 3380 Cedar Glade Rd., just south of 95th Street.
Bring a basket or bag to fill. Arrive by 8:55AM. Four fields of eggs will be set for youngsters in four age groups. Each egg hunt begins at 9AM sharp. Don’t be late because the eggs disappear egg-ceptionally fast in just a few minutes.
The Great Egg Hunt is geared for ages 1-8. Only children age 2 or younger may have egg-stra help from a parent. The Jaycees also will be accepting donations of nonperishable food items and shelf-stable microwaveable meals to benefit DuPage Pads at the event; no glass containers.
Bring a camera for photos with the Easter Bunny. Event parking is limited. Admission is free.
