A huge Easter egg hunt makes its return to Tampa the day before Easter on Saturday, March 30. Thousands and thousands of eggs will be scattered throughout the park—including three grand prize golden eggs.

“While the egg hunt is the highlight of the event, Ashley’s Eggsploration offers much more,” said Shaun Drinkard, Interim President of the Tampa Downtown Partnership. “Families and adults can enjoy brunch bites and shopping from local businesses. Plus, children can have their faces painted, decorate a bag, and even take a picture with the Easter Bunny. We’re in our third year now, and it’s become an Easter tradition.”
