Accessible Egg Hunt
April 20, 2019 10-12 p.m.

Log House Garden (5655 Windsor Island Rd N in Keizer)
$1 donation encouraged per person, but not required.
Shangri-La is excited to host the fifth annual Accessible Egg Hunt for people with disabilities of all ages.

***The egg hunt activity is reserved for individuals with disabilities of all ages and their immediate family members age 12 years and younger. All are welcome to participate in the non-egg hunt activities, such as the photo booth, games, etc.***

Given the outpouring of attendees at the 2018 egg hunt, we have adjusted the format of the 2019 event to better uphold our accessible intent. Rather than a single start time for the egg hunt, attendees can come ANYTIME between 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. to hunt for eggs and participate in the other activities.

This event is free. A $1 suggested donation per person is encouraged.

Baskets will be provided. Participants must use the provided basket. Participants can only gather as many eggs that fit in the provided basket. We do our best to make sure everyone gets a few eggs, but at some point, we will run out. We apologize in advance.

Eggs are filled with prizes/trinkets for all ages. New this year -- participants can empty their eggs into the provided basket and take the basket with them.

Accessible space and format: go-at-your-own-pace, paved and grass surfaces, ear muffs provided for sensory sensitivities. Egg buddies available to support attendees. Wheelchair accessible parking. Most surfaces are also wheelchair/walker-friendly.

Photos with the Easter Bunny, games, prizes, music and much more!

The venue provides a covered area. This is a rain or shine event, so don’t forget dress for the weather!

Interested in donating egg fillers (candy, coupons, etc.), prizes (admission passes, gift certificates, etc.) or making a monetary contribution to support this community event? Give us a call or send us an email.
