We have hosted this egg hunt event for thirteen years!
This year Our Promise to Nicholas Easter Egg Hunt Festival was called theINDOOR MAZE to the Egg Hunt & Easter Bunny.
Hosted on Saturday April 16, 2022, from 8:30AM to 12:00PM at the NH Sportsplex in Bedford, NH.
We were blessed with a crowd of 800 participants (event goers, exhibitors, and volunteers!). The different set up this year made the event even more exciting! Families hopped along the bunny footprints path in a one-way direction through the NH Sportsplex to the Egg Hunt entrance and photos with the Easter Bunny. This special year we had over 15,000 donated eggs filled with candy and prizes for the children. Twenty -four Sponsorship tables were along the bunny path across two indoor soccer fields. Families stopped at each sponsorship table to talk with the exhibitor, play games and get more eggs! Along the maze journey, families listened to music, play kids’ games, ran through an obstacle course, took photos with our many cute mascots, and enjoy a bunny hat craft. The Party Palace princess and pirates joined us this year for more special photos and crafts!
