“Egg Hunt on the Island” downtown Aurora

“Egg Hunt on the Island” is welcoming all ages downtown to search for artsy eggs placed in more than a dozen downtown storefronts.

In March, the Aurora Downtown organization is partnering with Adventures in Scavenger Hunting to create an Easter scavenger hunt at 14 locations throughout downtown.

The monthlong scavenger hunt celebrates spring and Easter, and offers a crowd-free event for everyone to enjoy.

Each participating location showcases an egg poster with a QR code to scan for entry into a giveaway. The posters were created by local artists and students.

One of the locations features dozens of eggs in their windows by students from Benavides STEAM Academy, Oak Park Elementary, and Rollins Elementary School in SD131.

Art teacher Bonny Ramirez who teaches at Benavides STEAM Academy and Oak Park Elementary created the project for her K-2 students “as a celebration of spring to coincide with Aurora Downtown’s Egg Hunt on the Island event,” she said.

“Egg Hunt on the Island” will continue through Easter weekend.

Aurora Downtown will host socially-distanced photos with the Easter Bunny from noon to 3 p.m. Saturdays, March 20 and 27, at Millennium Plaza on Stolp Avenue.

All egg art can be seen from sidewalks. Multiple eggs will be on display at one of the locations. The outdoor and socially-minded egg hunt will run through April 4.

Aurora Downtown is a nonprofit group of business and property owners within Special Service Area (SSA) One that is dedicated to making downtown Aurora a premier destination for arts, culture, entertainment, dining, living, and working. Learn more at www.auroradowntown.org.
