Blue skies and sunny weather prevailed on Saturday and the annual NRC Solomons Eggstravaganza drew record crowds. Families who attended were thrilled with the huge egg hunts and every child was able to "find" at least 8-10 eggs filled with various surprises.
Peter Rabbit arrived for photographs with the families who also enjoyed carnival games, line dancing to the live DJ and even an Easter egg croquet course.
"I love volunteering at the events MWR holds, especially the Eggstravaganza ...there is always so many activities" said Loyola University student Nicole Doster, who volunteered to paint faces at the event.
Jennifer Marchant, NRC Solomons Recreation Director, who coordinated this event said "people began arriving 45 minutes before the event started."
Along with all the fun activities each registered participant also received a t-shirt to tie-dye thanks to event sponsors Northrop Grumman, ITT Exelis and Lincoln Military Housing. The Eggstravaganza is the first sign that NRC Solomons is gearing up for another great summer. MWR hopes to see everyone back at NRC Solomons on Saturday, May 26; 7:30 p.m. - 10:30 p.m. for the free, summer concert. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy a great night of music. See you there!
