Largest Easter Egg Hunt in South Phoenix to be Hosted by Salvation Army Kroc Center
The Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Center Phoenix South Mountain is inviting the public to the fourth annual RJ’s Egg Hunt, the largest Easter egg hunt in South Phoenix. The event begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 13.
This free family event will include arts and crafts, family games, and music — along with free dental services for kids ages 17 and under. There will also be inflatable bounce houses, an obstacle course, face painting, and dance performances. ChurroGoNutz will be among the food trucks onsite, and community resource booths will be available from ASU Preparatory Academy and United Cerebral Palsy of Central Arizona.
There will be three available egg hunt times on the outdoor fields of the Kroc Center — 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. — and kids will be divided into three groups for each egg hunt: ages 4 and under, ages 5-8 and ages 9-11.
Team Smile is collaborating with the Arizona Cardinals to provide free dental screening, treatment and preventative care for children ages 17 and under inside the Kroc Center gym. No dental or health insurance is required. Appointment times are on the hour, every hour from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Those interested must register in advance by calling the Kroc Center at 602-425-5000, registering in person at 1375 E. Broadway Rd. in Phoenix, or completing online registration at this link.
The Kroc Center is also in need of monetary gifts and donations of plastic Easter eggs and candy for the event. Please contact the Kroc Center if you would like to make a donation.
