Hundreds of Summerlin residents attended the 17th annual Summerlin Egg Hunt Eggstravaganza April 16 at The Trails Park.
The annual spring event featured a variety of activities for all ages, including a candy and egg hunt, train ride, petting zoo, bounce house and visits from several characters, such as Mr. Bunny and the community’s beloved mascot, Summerlin Sam. Face painters and balloon artists also contributed to the festive atmosphere of the event.
The Summerlin Egg Hunt Eggstravaganza was planned exclusively for Summerlin residents by The Summerlin Council, the nonprofit arm of the Summerlin Community Association dedicated to the social, recreational, cultural and educational programming of the community.
According to Tom Warden, senior vice president of community and government relations for The Howard Hughes Corp., developer of Summerlin, the community leads the local market in terms of resident programming.
“Hundreds of events, classes, camps and programs are organized for residents every year by The Howard Hughes Corp., Summerlin and The Summerlin Council,” he said. “Summerlin’s programming rivals that of city, county and government entities. There isn’t another master-planned community in Southern Nevada that plans more activities for its residents than Summerlin.
Many of Summerlin’s annual events are focused around seasonal celebrations and holidays, such as the Egg Hunt Eggtravaganza.
Other annual resident events planned by The Summerlin Council include The Summerlin Council Patriotic Parade, Snow Day, Summerlin Circus, Hometown Holidays and the Summerlin Pumpkin Festival.
“These events are annual traditions for thousands of Summerlin families who enjoy celebrating the seasons together,” Warden said.
“They’re fun, interactive and memorable for residents of all ages. It’s just one other perk of living in Summerlin.”
