The Post: Dillingham Square Spring Event 2024

On March 23, 2024, the vibrant community of Dillingham Square came alive with the joy and excitement of the annual Spring Event. Despite a rainy start, the skies eventually cleared, paving the way for a memorable day filled with laughter, fun, and community spirit.

A Rainy Morning Turned Bright

The event kicked off at 11 AM under gloomy skies and steady rain, but by 11:30 AM, the rain had lightened, and by noon, it had completely stopped. The weather may have been chilly and windy at 50 degrees, but that didn't dampen the spirits of the 850 attendees who showed up ready to enjoy the festivities.

Highlights of the Day

Petting Zoo Delight

The petting zoo was undoubtedly the highlight of the day. Families and children aged 2-12 reveled in the opportunity to hold and interact with a variety of animals, including pigs, goats, and bunnies. The interactive experience allowed guests to connect with the animals in a hands-on manner, creating cherished memories.

Epic Egg Hunt

The excitement didn't stop there. With 15,000 toy and candy-filled eggs hidden throughout the square, the epic egg hunt added an adventurous element to the day. Kids and parents alike enjoyed the thrill of the hunt, collecting eggs in complimentary reusable Dillingham Square bags provided at registration.

Mr. Bunny and Photo Fun

Another crowd-pleaser was the Easter bunny photo session. Located at the Life Champ Martial Arts Center, families could pose for photos with Mr. Bunny and instantly text themselves the pictures. This convenient setup allowed for quick and easy photo sharing, ensuring everyone could capture and cherish their memories effortlessly.

Creativity and Entertainment

The Creativity Station featuring a Chalk Zone encouraged guests to express their artistic side by decorating the parking lot surfaces with colorful chalk drawings. Additionally, the live DJ kept the energy high with uptempo, family-friendly music, leading line dances and games that had everyone moving and grooving.

The Why

Dillingham Square Spring Event was a resounding success. The combination of engaging activities, community involvement, and efficient organization created a memorable experience for all who attended. It was a day filled with laughter, creativity, and a shared sense of community that will be remembered for years to come. The Community came together and the involvement of the merchants inside of the shopping center added a layer of community engagement that was appreciated by all attendees.
