Held at the Four Mile Run Park in the Arlandria-Chirilagua neighborhood in the City of Alexandria, this annual free community event is filled with entertainment, activities, food, music, and of course good Old-fashioned egg hunts. This family-friendly event consistently draws between 7000 to 8000 people and often that level is exceeded. With activities and entertainment for all age groups, this is truly an event for everyone.
