On March 31st, Crossroads at Big Creek will be taking a different approach to celebrating Easter with the EGGStravagaza, where instead of hunting for eggs, families will crack, break, throw and drop eggs out of a window. Each family will also dissect an egg, along with a chance to view two videos about a chick’s development inside the egg. Coggin Heeringa, Director of Crossroads at Big Creek says people will be amazed how strong eggs truly are.
Heeringa adds that the symbolism of eggs with Easter and spring has several ties, from rebirth in Pagan cultures to the opening of the tomb in Christianity. The event is free to attend and starts at 1 pm at the Collins Learning Center.
