The annual Ocean Beach Easter Egg Hunt takes place in March or April and is one of the most thrilling few minutes for kids as they join the Easter Bunny collecting eggs at Robb Field park. Bounce house, face painters, popcorn and snow cones make the morning an exciting time for many children. A couple of age groups separate the bigger kids from the toddlers. The 39th annual Easter Egg Hunt took place in April, 2014. Many thanks to the volunteers and organizers who put on this wonderful event for children.
Many of the pictures here are from the 37th annual Ocean Beach Easter Egg Hunt took place on April 7th, 2012 at Robb Field. Hundreds of children participated in the well run event that included a giant bounce for children to play on that was very popular. Add to the event unlimited free popcorn, face painting, balloon animals, and of course the colorful spring egg hunt that has been a tradition in Ocean Beach, San Diego for decades. The Easter bunny made an appearance and was a willing participant for hundreds of pictures with happy children.
The Easter egg hunt was broken up into age groups starting with the 1-2 year olds. The next age group followed 15 minutes later and so on till even the bigger little kids got their chance to find the golden egg during the hunt. That is right, there were golden eggs hidden amongst the thousands of colorful candy filled plastic eggs. If the child was lucky enough to find the golden egg he or she could turn it in for a big prize basket filled with candy, toys, sports balls and more. The younger age groups had their Easter egg hunt on the playground while the bigger kids hunted for eggs on the large grassy field.
