Santee Lakes 14th annual Spring EGGstravaganza
Well, the City of Santee and Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve has done it again bringing thousands of people to celebrate its 14th annual Spring EGGstravaganza down past Lake #5 on April 15. Each year, this event gets larger, with more people and new rides for the kids, and its ever-popular Easter egg hunts. This year was no exception as all of the lakes were buzzing with people getting in some near-end trout season fishing, holding family picnics and enjoying a pleasant day outdoors. It was a wonderful kick-off to the Easter holiday.
There was plenty going on to entertain the kids with pony rides, a petting zoo, great carnival rides, and crafts and even dancing with Primo DJ. It was a great day for family entertainment. Many dressed in their Easter best, the 3-year-old and under Easter egg hunt was as chaotic and fun as usual with little ones impatiently waiting to run around and pick up Easter eggs and candy. The older Easter egg hunt followed suit, with the kids just as anxious to get in there and grab all the goodies provided. The petting zoo and pony rides were continuously popular with lines of kids waiting to get in. And the carnival rides were a popular draw for both the kids and many adults. In between kids ran off excess energy in the inflatables, enjoyed the many vendors and great food.
