THE WHITE HOUSE HAS AN EASTER EGG ROLL BUT THE GABLES PLANS A HELICOPTER EGG DROP


On Saturday, March 30, thousands of colorful, plastic eggs will be dropped by helicopter onto the Youth Center Field as children watch from the perimeter.

Simultaneous egg hunts will take place at 10 a.m. at five parks in the city but the Gables Youth Center is the only one with a helicopter egg drop.
Immediately following the egg hunts, residents can take in a free concert, and carnival games and rides. Those in close proximity to the Youth Center may hear the helicopter overhead at approximately 9:50 a.m. for a few minutes.
Participating parks are War Memorial Youth Center, 405 University Drive; Jaycee Park, 1230 Hardee Road; Phillips Park, 90 Menores Avenue; Salvadore Park, 1120 Andalusia Avenue, and Sunrise Harbor Park, 25 Sunrise Avenue
