“World’s Largest” Easter Egg Hunt
An Annual Tradition
On the Saturday before Easter each year, the Mission Arlington® family hosts a giant Easter egg hunt, affectionately called the “World’s Largest.” No one can quite remember how long this fun-filled, family event has been on the calendar, but it has run non-stop each year, going back at least into the 1990s. During the pandemic, when gathering large groups wasn’t possible, we kept faith with this tradition by taking eggs out to homes, so that each family could host their own egg hunt safely and with much fun.
Dates & Times
The “World’s Largest” Easter egg hunt happens from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 16th. The event is located outdoors, in the open field behind Grace Street Fellowship. Everyone is invited. Please bring your family and friends.
Fun for the Whole Family
This Easter egg hunt is open for all, and it is especially fun for families. The event begins with the telling of the original Easter story. Afterwards, families sit around picnic tables to eat lunch outdoors. Giant bouncy houses cover a large outdoor field, where children can jump and play. Finally, we provide six-lanes of open field, with an arsenal of over 100,000 plastic Easter eggs, filled with candy. Children (and their parents) have so much fun hunting for Easter eggs. Truly, this is an event which is fun for the whole family .
Free of Charge
As with every Mission Arlington® event, this one is also provided “free of charge.” There is no charge to attend the event, and no charge for anything happening within the event.
How you can help
You can bring plastic Easter eggs, and/or individually wrapped bags of candy to Mission Arlington® anytime up to the day of the Egg Hunt. Volunteers are also a great help. It takes “many hands” to make this event work. If you, your family, and/or your team, would like to help, please give us a call at 817-704-6143.
We love working with children, and families. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (Matthew 19:14). The Easter egg hunt is one of our favorite events of the year. We hope to see you there!
