Saturday, April 4 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm$10
All children 10 years of age and under are invited to our outdoor Easter event on Saturday, April 4 at Patterson Park. The Marshmallow Drop will begin promptly at 12:00 p.m., rain or shine. Marshmallows will drop from the sky by helicopter. Children will be split into two age group categories and drop times:
• Children ages 1-5 at 12:00 p.m. (Arrive no later than 11:45 a.m.)
• Children ages 6-10 at 12:30 p.m. (Arrive no later than 12:15 p.m.)
• Families with children in both age categories can choose to participate in one drop, but it must be the 12:30 p.m. drop time.
Collection bags will be provided as the children arrive. After the drop, children will exchange their marshmallow filled bags for goodie bags at the overhang near the splash pad. Each drop will have 5 Golden Eggs and those who find them will receive a special prize. The Easter Bunny will also be on hand for pictures along with costumed characters and pony cart rides.
Tickets are $10.00 per child and will be available March 1 through April 3 at the Lavins Activity Center front desk. For questions, please call Chad at (313)-822-2812 ext. 200.
