Some-“Bunny” special is coming to Fallbrook Community Center for Breakfast with the Bunny and an Egg Hunt. Get your day started with a hot pancake breakfast ($5/plate) at 8:30 a.m., followed by pictures with our long-eared VIP. Don’t forget to bring family, friends and your basket – youth who stick around until 10:30 a.m. can participate in the egg hunt!
Ready…Set…Spring Event! Celebrate by creating some special memories in the sunshine at Otay Lakes County Park. We’ll kick things off with breakfast and photos featuring with a very infamous bunny at 9:30 am. Then, enjoy watching the kids scamper around at the 11 a.m. egg hunt. Remember to bring a basket for egg-collecting, along with your phone or camera to capture those unforgettable moments.
Lakeside Community Center is also throwing a Spring Event! Hop on over at 5 p.m. for a sunset celebration. From hands-on activities to games and giveaways, it’s sure to be an evening to remember. Entertainment and refreshments will be provided, so gather your family and friends enjoy a night with us.

The season wouldn’t be complete without not one, but two, Eggstravaganza events. Fetch your kids and their baskets, and seek out some of the 2,000 eggs hidden in Louis A. Stelzer County Park, beginning promptly at 10 a.m. After the hunt, hang out for pictures with a photogenic bunny and enjoy a hike or picnic in the park. This is a popular event, and the eggs are gone fast!
Dos Picos County Park's Eggstravaganza features all kinds of Springtime merrymaking, including arts &a bounce house, crafts and a scavenger hunt. But the main event – the egg hunt for kids 11 and younger – begins at 11:30 a.m. Bring a basket or bag to store those holiday treasures.
Sunday, April 17
There’s more of El Monte County Park to love in the ranger team’s Egg Hunt, planned from 12 to 1 p.m. In addition to the usual egg search, guests will be able to meet some live reptiles – including one scaly sensation moonlighting as a bunny. But we don’t mean to discount the egg search because some of the eggs will have stars that bring their bearers prizes!
