Helicopter Egg Drop Highlight of Spring Fling
On March 10 the Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum (www.SACMuseum.org) will hold a Spring Fling that will prove to be fun for the entire family.
The Spring Fling begins at 10 a.m. with a helicopter flyover at the front entrance of the museum. The helicopter will drop thousands of eggs onto the grassy area and youth ages 10 and under will be invited to hunt and gather eggs. The kids will be separated into two age groups of up to 5 years old and 6-10 years old. The museum will then offer hands-on activities indoors until 12 p.m. Activities include a picture with the Easter Bunny, face painting, coloring contest raffle, and a make-and-take. For the coloring contest raffle, there will be an Easter basket given to the winner! Each contestant will receive a ticket for the drawing to be held at 11:50 a.m. after completing and hanging his or her picture.
The outdoor egg hunt is free and general admission applies to those entering the museum. The Spring Fling event, Children’s Learning Center activities, and Energy Explorers exhibit are included with general admission. Guests must register in advance for the 12 p.m. Get Smart Saturday workshop.
