Fourth Annual Easter Egg Hunt Is March 22
Talladega Superspeedway officials announced today that the Easter Bunny plans to make a return visit to NASCAR’s Most Competitive Track on Saturday, March 22, from 10 a.m. to noon for the track’s Fourth Annual Easter Egg Hunt in the infield.
The hunt is open to all kids age 1 through 10, and the thousands of eggs hidden at various points in the track’s infield will all contain candy or other prizes.
“This is an event we look forward to every year,” said Talladega Superspeedway President Rick Humphrey. “It is a terrific opportunity for families to come out and enjoy a nice, family-oriented day together at the racetrack.”
There is no cost to attend the event, which will include:
¿ Easter Basket Contest – Kids are encouraged to decorate their own Easter baskets and arrive with them ready for judging! Everyone should arrive a little early in order to park, because an Easter Basket Contest will be held immediately as the event begins at 10 a.m.
¿ Egg Hunts By Age Group – The hunt for prize-filled eggs will begin at 10:30 a.m. for kids age 1 through 3. Then at 11 a.m., kids age 4 through 6 will participate in a hunt, followed by kids age 7 through 10 at 11:30 a.m.
¿ Visit With The Easter Bunny – As promised, the Easter Bunny will return to visit with eager egg hunters during the event.
¿ Face Painting – Face painters will be set up ready to create miniature masterpieces on the cheeks of all who visit.
¿ Refreshments – Two of Talladega Superspeedway’s official sponsors, Pepsi and Golden Flake, will provide refreshments and snacks.
¿ Displays and Games – The Talladega Superspeedway Pace Car, the Talladega On Wheels promotions vehicle, the Talladega Superspeedway Show Car, Dodge trucks and cars, and various other special vehicles utilized by the track will be on display.
The annual Easter Egg Hunt continues to grow each year. During last year’s event, more than 500 people filled the track’s infield. Children ages 1 to 10 searched out nearly 11,000 candy and prize filled eggs in three separate hunts located in the northern section of the track’s 212 acre infield.
