Free community Easter egg hunt April 3 in Monte Vista


MONTE VISTA — A free community Easter egg hunt will be happening on April 3 in Monte Vista. The event is hosted by Dylan R. Brown Agency — Farmers Insurance which is partnering with the Monte Vista Police Department, and Monte Vista Elks, on this event for the community. 

The event will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 3, at Chapman Park. 

There will be over 15 vendors and booths at the event. There will also be food trucks, a bouncy house, pony rides, and carnival games. The Easter egg hunt is for children ages infant to 12 years old. They have around 15,000 eggs to be found.

When asked what made them want to put this event together for the community Dylan Brown answered saying, “We really love community events. We like getting people together and just different activities so the community can come together and have something to look forward to and enjoy, especially kids.” 

Brown explained that they had their first community Easter egg hunt two years ago in Alamosa when they noticed there wasn’t much happening at this time of year, and there weren’t any big Easter events in the Valley.

“The first year we did it was actually two years ago, and we thought it would be kind of small but fun, and we ended up having close to 4,500 people show up. It was a huge success. A lot of fun,” said Brown sharing that they hope this will give people something to look forward to and create some free family fun for the community.
