Special Olympics Calgary is excited to provide our first ever city wide EGGSTRAVAGANZA Easter Egg Hunt!

We want to encourage our athletes and volunteers to get out of their homes and participate as an individual, family or household in a safe and fun Easter Egg Hunt. We have decorated large cardboard eggs which will be displayed in windows of buildings and businesses throughout the city over Easter weekend for our members to find.

The egg-citing question is…how many eggs will you find?

There are two ways for you to participate in the Hunt and win prizes!
  1. Solve the Clues
Complete this form and solve the clues by matching the riddle with the correct business. Prizes are awarded just for completing the form, as well as if you correctly match 8 or more of the clues! The form must be submitted by midnight on Monday, April 5th to be eligible.
  1. Find the Eggs
Visit the participating locations over Easter weekend (Saturday, April 3 – Sunday, April 4) and take a photo of you with the egg(s) and send your pictures to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by midnight on Monday, April 5th to be eligible for draw prizes. For every picture you send in of you with a different egg location, that will count as an entry into the draw for Calgary Flames jerseys, $50 & $100 gift cards, board games, blankets and more!

To help you in your egg search, we have provided a list of the location addresses as some businesses have multiple locations throughout the city and we didn’t want to make it THAT HARD! If you want further assistance, there are additional prompts included too (and a map). Please use our Egg Locations pdf document to help you have a fun and successful hunt!
 


Things to Remember:

• Eggs are available to be "hunted" on Saturday, April 3rd and Sunday, April 4th
• Eggs may be displayed in a tinted window so look carefully. If the egg doesn't come through on the picture that is okay as long as we can see the member at that location.
• Please do not enter the building, unless they are open and you are following mask/physical distancing protocols - you are able to go in say hi, thank them for supporting Special Olympics Calgary, or if you are able to support their business.
• We recommend athletes participate with a support person to drive around to the locations.

 

Stay safe, have fun, and happy hunting!

We hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend!
