  1. Shame on you Sprayberry! I have never seen so many children as upset as I have today. Children left with nothing and were crying. It was so unorganized. You should rethink this next year. I have been going to the egg drop for 7 years and this was the WORST. First the helicopter dropped eggs on the crowd, not the field. Then you had 4-7 year olds getting eggs at one time and the parents were getting eggs instead of the kids. Only one gate was opened to enter and exit. I have a feeling next year you will not have as many participants. So disappointing!

  2. Wow! I so remember that disaster in 2015. The helicopter dropped the Easter eggs right on our heads . Kids were crying and so disappointed with the whole event. We never returned.

  3. Awful, the staff who coordinates the logistics and culture of this event should be ashamed of themselves. I thought my ten year old would be fine for the Easter egg hunt, nope. Many of the parents encourage aggressive behavior. My daughter was pushed down by a mother and other kids grabbed eggs out of her hands. She came out sobbing with 0 eggs collected. Not worth a 30 minute drive.

    Get the %$!&ing parents not off the field and manage logistics better. Companies sponsoring this type of “family fun” should step away from this event. You’re supporting violence towards children.

    Parents – do yourself the favor of participating in something else, … unless you like Black Friday shopping at Walmart and the culture that comes with that. Fairly identical.
