The Av­enue Church will host an in­au­gu­ral he­li­copter egg drop April 7 at the South Wal­ton Re­cre­aton Com­plex, So­cial Cir­cle. Over 10,000 plas­tic Easter eggs will be dropped.

There will be three sep­a­rate drops — one for tod­dler-4 year olds, a sec­ond for 5-7 year olds and the third drop for 8-12 year olds. The hunts on each field will be stag­gered by 20 min­utes. Once the eggs are on the field, chil­dren will be able to hunt for them in their des­ig­nated age area. Af­ter all the eggs are found, the chil­dren can take them to an area to re­deem them for candy.

Food ven­dors such Chick­fil-a, BBQ & Papa’s Pizza will sell food, and Snow Cone treats will be on sale for dessert. In­flat­a­bles have been do­nated for the day by The Av­enue Church and will be avail­able to the kids for free. The he­li­copter may just be on-site af­ter the final drop, and you can take a ride with fam­ily or a friend. Sev­eral prizes will be given through­out the day to chil­dren who have reg­is­tered.

The church is plan­ning for thou­sands of peo­ple to be in at­ten­dance for this year’s egg drop. “We’re work­ing very hard to make our first year’s event the best it can be. We’ll have tons of vol­un­teers on site serv­ing the fam­i­lies,” said Bryan Hoover, lead pas­tor of The Av­enue Church.

In or­der to hunt and be el­i­gi­ble for give-a-ways, chil­dren must reg­is­ter when they ar­rive at the reg­is­tra­tion tents and should ar­rive by 11 a.m.

“The Av­enue Church has al­ways been about serv­ing the com­mu­nity, and we think pro­vid­ing a great, free event like the Egg Drop is a great way to bring the com­mu­nity to­gether and en­joy a fun day,” said Hoover.

This he­li­copter egg drop brought out a bevy of res­i­dents from New­ton County.
