The Easter season isn't far away, which means for the fourth year running the Northeast Cobb Community Egg Drop is also on the horizon. Here's the release we received on Friday:
Bring the whole family out for the 4th Annual Northeast Cobb Community Egg Drop presented by Piedmont Church, Superior Plumbing and Cobb County Schools and get ready as more than 90,000 eggs and pieces of candy are spread out and dropped from a helicopter at the football fields at Sprayberry High School March 30, 2013!
The event begins at 10 a.m., and in addition to gathering up all the eggs, there will be candy, face painting and the Three-13 Salon, Spa and Boutique Kids Zone with inflatable slides and bounce houses for the toddlers and the older thrill seekers alike, unlimited rides can be purchased for only $5 per child. Also plan to have your photo taken for free with the Easter Bunny courtesy of LGE Community Credit Union. Capture the memories for a lifetime!
Free admission and ample free parking will be available at Sprayberry High School. Food will also be available to purchase from the Sprayberry Football Booster Club and all other proceeds from the event go to support both the Shop with a Yellow Jacket and the Shop with a Longhorn programs for Sprayberry and Kell High Schools respectively.
The Egg Hunts will get started around the football field at 11:30 a.m., the fire truck’s siren will go off and children ages three and under will begin their egg hunt. At 12:30 p.m., a helicopter will fly over and drop thousands of eggs for the four to seven year olds to hunt. At, 1:30 p.m., children eight to 10 will be instructed to go on the fire trucks siren.
An estimated 8,000 people attended the event last year and weather permitting the crowds are expected to exceed 2012 totals. For more information or to sponsor the event please contact Bill Watson at 770.423.1330, email him at email@example.com.
