The Mill Creek Egg Grab N Go Event will be drive-through this year

The Covid-19 pandemic safety guidelines required changing the City of Mill Creek's traditional Eggstravaganza event to what is now called the Mill Creek Egg Grab N Go. This drive-through event will be held on Saturday, April 3, 2021, from 10:00 am to noon.

From a March 15, 2021, City of Mill Creek press release.

Join the City of Mill Creek on Saturday, April 3rd, for the Egg Grab N Go event. The drive-thru event begins at 10:00 am at Heatherwood Middle School, 1419 Trillium Boulevard SE.

This year, the City of Mill Creek is offering an alternative to the annual Eggstravaganza event held the day before Easter to comply with Covid-19 safety guidelines.

Bags of plastic eggs prefilled with Hershey Kisses are available for children one to twelve years old.

To help reduce traffic congestion, city staff recommend staggering arrival times for the egg collection.

If possible, children between the ages of one and five years old should arrive from 10:00 am to 11:00 am; and children between the ages of six and twelve years old should arrive from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm, noon.

Bags of eggs will be distributed while supplies last.

Canned food donations will not be collected at the event this year. Instead, take canned food donations to the Mill Creek Food Bank located at Gold Creek Community Church, 4326 148th Street SE.

While the city requests that community members stay in their car, you are encouraged to dress up and bring your Easter basket to the event.

Please remember to wear a mask as you let down your window and approach the distribution point.

City staff, Mill Creek Youth Advisory Board members, and volunteers (masked and wearing gloves) will be on location distributing the prepackaged eggs.
