Hop To Ponca State Park’s Easter Egg-travaganza Saturday

PONCA – Celebrate the long weekend at the Easter Egg-travaganza at Ponca State Park on Saturday, April 15th.

The day begins with an Easter staple, egg painting. Participants can express their artistic abilities to decorate beautiful eggs. Supplies like paint, markers and other decorations will be provided. Egg artists should meet at the Resource and Education Center. The cost of the event is $1 per three eggs.

At 11 a.m., park-goers will have the opportunity to have fun and learn in the process. Participants will have the opportunity to learn all about egg-laying animals native to Nebraska. They’ll also help feed the snakes and get to see, first-hand, how snakes are able to swallow eggs whole. The event is free and those interested should meet at the Resource and Education Center.

The first of two Easter egg hunts commences at 2 p.m. The whole family can enjoy a great time hunting eggs outside of Ponca State Park’s Resource and Education Center.

After the egg hunt, hit the trail, the Bigley’s Ravine Trail. At 3:30 p.m., participants can see the park’s 1.7-mile trail in bloom. Hikers should be on the lookout for woodland wildflowers and mushrooms. This activity is great for the whole family, including pets. Meet at the Resource and Education Center to take advantage of this free event.

Finally, at 8:30 p.m., the Egg-travaganza comes to a close with a very special Easter Egg Hunt. Bring a flashlight and basket for the glow-in-the-dark egg hunt. Some flashlight will be provided and participants are encouraged to dress for the weather. Egg hunters should meet at the Riverfront Campground.
