Easter Egg Hunt at Talladega Superspeedway - Saturday, April 11
The Easter Bunny is returning to NASCAR’s Most Competitive Track on Saturday, April 11 for the track’s Fifth Annual Easter Egg Hunt in the infield. Open to children age 1-10, this free event is fun-filled for the whole family.
Clowns from the Aromaz Dynasty Daughters of the Nile, will be painting faces and tying balloon animals, while the Easter Bunny will judge the Easter Basket competition and pose for pictures with the children.
When it’s time to hunt for eggs, kids will find that 15,000 plastic eggs stuffed with candy and prizes have been hidden throughout the infield.
“The Easter Egg Hunt is good chance to bring the family out to Talladega Superspeedway and enjoy the spring weather. Each year we have increased the number of eggs we hide and the number of activities we have during the day. And, each year, more and more guests show their support for the track and attend ready to hunt eggs. We expect this, our fifth year, to set another attendance record and we look forward to welcoming everyone for the day.”
