Northeast Cobb Community Egg Drop on April 20

More than 90,000 eggs will be dumped from a helicopter on to a Cobb County high school football field for your little ones to find during the 10th annual Northeast Community Egg Drop at Sprayberry High School. 

This family-friendly event kicks off at 10 a.m. April 20, and will feature tens of thousands of eggs and pieces of candy that will be dropped from a helicopter on to the school’s field. 

Other activities include face painting, a Kids Zone with inflatable slides and bounce houses and a chance to have a free photo taken with the Easter Bunny. 

Egg hunts will begin at 11:30 a.m. for children ages three and younger. At 1:30 p.m., the helicopter will drop thousands of eggs for the 4 to 7 year old children to find. A special needs egg hunt is set for 2 p.m., and children 8 to 10 years old will round out the hunting at 3:30 p.m.

In between hunts, Peter Hart with Atlanta Puppet will keep the crowd entertained at noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. You’ll also be able to purchase food and drinks, and proceeds from those sales will go to the Shop with a Yellow Jacket and Shop with a Longhorn programs at Sprayberry and Kell high schools, respectively. More than $17,000 was donated to both programs in 2018. 

The community egg drop is free and free parking will be available at Sprayberry HIgh School at 2525 Sandy Plains Road. A free shuttle service will also be provided from the LA Fitness parking lot across from the school.
