On March 19th, 2016 we held our 3rd Annual Easter Eggstravaganza event in Window Rock, AZ. The Easter hunt took place at the Window Rock Veteran’s Park with hundreds of guests and 5,000 eggs! We also had a playful Alice in Wonderland theme for the Spring weather and handmade decorations from all our Members. Each of us dressed up as a character from the 1951 Disney movie, such as Alice, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, Cheshire Cat, The Red Queen, Playing Cards, and Singing Flowers.
The weather was beautiful for March, with sunny skies and minimal winds. We hosted our Easter Bake Sale and Raffle Booth with many prizes donated by native artists such as Jay Garcia, Jay Smiley, Def-I, OxDx Clothing, and others. Our guests really enjoyed our themed event that year!
We had some great live entertainment by DJ Jermatik as our MC in a bunny suit and songs by the 2015-2016 Miss Navajo Nation Powwow Princess Marlyssa Jim. In between egg hunts, we had an Egg Toss game, a Calk Walk fundraiser, an Easter Race with teams, and a Selfie Booth for participants to use their own phones for photos.
A huge thank you to all our raffle prize donators mentioned above, to our live entertainment guests, and to Navajo Arts and Crafts for their egg donations! We truly appreciate your contributions to helping make this community event possible and something that our attendees now look forward to every year.
