Several thousand children and their parents celebrated Easter weekend
with everything from a traditional egg hunt to the Power Rangers at
the Easter Eggs-plosion.
The fifth annual event was sponsored by the Burbank Park,
Recreation and Community Services Department and KDIS, Radio Disney
AM 1110. In addition to the Easter egg hunt, the Eggs-plosion
featured a variety of activities and an appearance by Stanley from
Playhouse Disney. Organizers said about 6,000 people attended
Saturday’s event, up about 1,000 from the year before. Recreation
Services Manager Gwen Indermill said good weather improved the
turnout and those she talked to offered nothing but positive
“I think people just really like being able to spend an afternoon
at an event where there are so many things to do,” she said.
Coordinating such a large event for children is no easy task, but
organizer Kelly Barnes said she was pleased with how smoothly it ran.
“We were really happy,” she said. “It just went one thing after
another, perfectly on-schedule.”
