TOO Cute Tuesday: Linky Par-Tay! #378

The girls and I braved the sprinkles of rain this weekend and went out to the Irvine Park Railroad Easter Eggstravaganza to see the Easter Bunny. It turns out that semi-rainy days are the perfect day to go because it keeps all the crowds away. It was so much fun!

Now onto TOO Cute Tuesday!

Irvine Park Railroad Easter Eggstravaganza 2018 {GIVEAWAY}

Disclaimer: My family was invited to a media event. All opinions are my own.

We're so excited that the Easter Bunny will be hopping back to the Irvine Park Railroad for the annual Easter Eggstravaganza Saturday, March 10th through Saturday, March 31st. It's one of our most favorite times of the year at the Irvine Park Railroad because the weather is gorgeous and the fun activities are plentiful! 

There are daily egg hunts for children starting at 10:00am on weekdays and 9:00am on weekends. You buy tickets and exchange them for a wristband for a specific egg hunt time. Make sure you check the schedule before you go, because the egg hunts are for certain age groups at different times. Get your wristbands early because egg hunt times can sell out.

I love how organized the egg hunts are and the egg hunt referees give all the kids the rules before the hunt begins. The egg hunt referees are also pretty funny, so be sure to listen for a joke here and there.

There is a big sign that tells which wristband is hunting during that time period. I always worry at events where a lot of kids (and over excited parents!) are involved that there will be chaos. But the Irvine Park Railroad staff has it down! They have strict rules, they teach everyone the rules, and they enforce the rules. I appreciate that because then all the kids are safe.

Don't forget to bring your Easter baskets to the egg hunt, but if you do,  the Irvine Park Railroad will have baskets you can purchase.

All the eggs contain either a candy or a prize, so everyone is a winner! There are also sometimes fun prizes - like bunny ears - hidden among the grass too. You can even win tickets for free activities inside some of the eggs! And there is a lot of candy besides the eggs and you can pick up as much candy as you'd like.

The kids can also meet the Easter Bunny for $12 and receive a complimentary photo taken by the Irvine Park Railroad staff. Each additional print is $6.00 and all photos are printed in a few short minutes at the Easter Bunny booth while you wait.

While you're there, don't forget to catch a ride on the train, take a hay ride, bounce in the moon bounce, decorate an Easter cookie, get your face painted, or play the carnival games - where everyone wins!!!

I'm so excited that the Irvine Park Railroad folks are letting me give away a
great prize package:

8 Tickets  
(which can be used to ride the train OR participate in activities)

1 Wheel Fun Rentals at Irvine Park Double Surrey Bike Rental

Prize value is $80.00
