Egg-citement Prevails at Girsh Park’s Annual Easter Egg Hunt

For the fifth year, hundreds of children swarmed Girsh Park on Saturday for the annual Egg Hunt.

More than 10,000 brightly colored Easter eggs filled with candy, toys and prizes were scattered around the 25-acre park. Additionally, several “magic” eggs were hidden with certificates that allowed finders to host a future party at the park for free.

The park was divided into six age-appropriate fields for egg hunting. One of the fields was specially reserved for children with physical and developmental disabilities. Children in wheelchairs were given extended handle “grabbers” to collect eggs.

In addition to the egg hunt, face painting, inflatable jumpers and interactive games were available. Children were also able to take pictures with the Girsh Park Easter Bunny.

The event was sponsored by MarBorg Industries, Union Bank, Rotary Club of Goleta, Camino Real Marketplace, Luna’s Jump, AMS Entertainment, Montecito Bank & Trust and Cottage Health System.

While attendance to the event was free, donations were accepted for The Foundation for Girsh Park, a nonprofit organization that relies on community donations to sustain the park’s ongoing operating budget.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
