CHANDLER, Ariz. – Chandler’s Family Easter Celebration is hopping to Downtown Chandler Friday, March 29. Families are invited to join in the fun at Dr. A.J. Chandler Park: Stage Plaza from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Admission is free. 

The popular 24 Karrot Trail is a highlight of the evening. Children ages nine and under can hop along the trail with their own Easter baskets to collect eggs filled with candy or prizes. Little bunnies who find an egg with a “golden karrot” will be given a special prize. The 24 Karrot Trail will be open from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., or until the eggs are all gone.

Every family who attends can enter to win a free drawing for an Easter Basket filled with lots of goodies. The drawing will be at 7:40 p.m. and the winner must be present to win.

Free carnival games and inflatable attractions, a prize wheel, performances from local groups and photos with the Easter Bunny add to the fun. Merchandise, food and beverages will also be available for purchase.

Chandler’s most egg-cellent artists can participate in this event by creating their own Easter-themed masterpiece. Pick up this year’s Easter coloring page at any Chandler recreation facility or download it at Family Easter Celebration. Young artists, ages nine and under, can use their favorite combination of crayons, markers and glitter to decorate their coloring page. Get hopping – entries must be submitted by Monday, March 25. Winners in four age categories will be announced at the event at 5:45 p.m.

The 44th Annual Family Easter Celebration is presented by the City of Chandler in partnership with Waste Management, Chandler Lions Club and Raising Cane's.
