On April 16, the annual Eggstravaganza event was hosted in Heritage Park in Dublin, where people from Dublin and neighboring cities gather and participate in Easter-themed activities. 

“There are many activities in this event, they have an easter hunt for the kids, fingernail painting, inflation toys, and spinning wheels, it’s an activity for both adults and kids,” said Katie, a mother living close by.

There are a variety of stands in this event, every participant in this event brings their unique activity, which contributes to the Eggstravaganza custom.

“We are here to let people know about the Easter feast this weekend. More importantly, we want to spread the message about Easter, and the origin of the holiday,” said Jennifer.

Moreover, the Eggstravaganza is a family event, designed for families to come together. It provides a valuable time for families to spend time with each other. Coming to Eggstravaganza becomes some families’ family-tradition during the springtime.

“My family comes here every year. I come with my daughters, my granddaughters, my husband, and my mother-in-law. We are having a great time here,” said Katie.

However, due to the rain in the morning, the event this year was hugely impacted and the number of participants and tourists is largely reduced. The blow on this event upset many participants who expected to have a more popular-than-ever Eggstravaganza.

“This event was large last year, we sold everything out in the first hour of the event, and we prepared much more food this year. But fewer people than expected came this year due to the rain.  We still have a lot of stock that hasn’t been sold,” said John, who operates a hot dog stand.

Even though the event this year is not as lively as the past years, those who endured the rain had a fabulous experience from this event.

“I enjoy this event because it is so fun, I can’t wait to come here again next year,” said Emily Lin (‘24).
