Event description


Join us on Saturday, March 31st from 10am-1:30pm for St. Louis's largest Egg Drop! This FREE Easter event is for the whole family! Not only will we drop thousands of eggs from a helicopter—we also have bounce houses, food trucks, games, prizes & more!

All who pre-register are entered to win a Nintendo Switch! A family member must be present to win.


Who can participate in the Egg Drop?

Children ages 0-12 can participate. Adults and teenagers may attend the event but cannot participate in the Egg Drop.

Do I really need to pre-register?

We are expecting thousands of people and we would hate for your kids to miss the EggDrop because they are standing in the registration line. Pre-registering your child allows for you to move through the line much quicker! We will be registering people at the event, but we highly recommend registering in advance to ensure you get in.
Plus, only those pre-registered will be entered to win a Nintendo Switch!

Do I have to bring my printed registration confirmation to the event?

Yes, you will need to either bring the printed confirmation or you may show the confirmation on a mobile device. If you forget to bring your confirmation to the event (printed or mobile), you will need to present valid photo identification.

What if I pre-register my child and then bring additional children to the Egg Drop?

Anyone who has not pre-registered will need to stand in line at the event to register.

What time does the event start?

The event and registration opens at 10am. No one will be allowed in the event area before this time. The first Egg Drop will be at 11am.

What if it is raining or snowing?

In the event of inclement weather, please check back here or on Facebook for details about any changes.

Is there a cost?

The Food Vendors are the only thing that cost at the event, everything else is FREE.

Where do we park?

There will be limited on-site parking. Overflow parking will be available nearby with officers available to help you and your family make it safely across the road to the event. Plan to carpool if possible.

What type of food will be at the event?

Local food trucks will be on hand with food available for purchase. Kona Ice, Cardinals Nation, Wing Nut, Slide Piece, Blues Fired Pizza, and Sarah's Cake Stop! Check back to take a peek at the menus!

Do we bring our own basket?

No, we will supply each child with a container to collect eggs. Baskets, bags, and outside containers will not be allowed in the Egg Drop area.

Will there really be a helicopter dropping eggs? Is that safe?

Yes! A full size helicopter, compliant with all laws and permits, will drop thousands of plastic eggs onto the fields before the egg hunt! But don’t worry, everyone will be standing in a safe area away from where the eggs are being dropped. After the eggs are dropped, the kids will be allowed to gather them up.

What ages can participate in the Egg Drop?

Only children ages 4-12 will be allowed to participate in the Egg Drop. Children ages 0-3 will have a specially designated area to hunt eggs where parents can assist.

Will my younger children be overwhelmed by older children?

No, we will have 4 staggered drops that will be divided by age group.

Will parents/guardians be allowed to help gather eggs with children?

No, adults and children 13 and older will not be allowed in the fenced off areas. Parents will be able to watch their kids, and encourage them from the boundary lines, just a few feet from the actual egg hunt field. Our amazing Egg Drop Volunteers will ensure your children stay safe and have fun during their hunt.

Will there be accommodations for special needs children?

There will be a specially designated area for children with special needs to hunt eggs where parents can assist in collecting eggs. (Special needs children 12 years and under).

How many eggs will my child be allowed?

Each child will be allowed to collect 12 eggs. This will allow everyone to walk away with goodies! Eggs will contain candy or a small toy.

Will there be restrooms at the event?

Yes, we will have portable restrooms located outside at the event.

Who do I contact if I have other questions?
