Who says Easter egg hunts are just for kids? Everyone loves an Easter egg hunt at Easter time, and what better way can you indulge in the holiday event then by participating in the World’s Largest Easter Egg Hunt? You read right – it’s the biggest in the world, and you can be a part of it on Sunday, April 16th on Copper Mountain. Just take I-70 for about 75 miles west of Denver in Summit County, Colorado.
Be sure to hop on over to Copper Mountain to hunt for 65,000 eggs spread over 2,500 acres. You’ll choose the hunt based on age. For instance, the hunt for kids 3 and under and the hunt for bigger kids takes place in the Center Village, while grown-ups can test their egg-finding skills in the adult hunt on the mountain.
As part of the movement to reduce, reuse, and recycle, Copper encourages and suggests all participants to return their empty eggs to be re-loaded and reused for the years to come. The first 800 participants who return their eggs will receive a free chocolate candy from Yowie! Participants have the option to chose their hunt, and there’s a hunt for any age!
