Get ready for Melody Church's Egg Drop 2014

Pre-register your child beginning Saturday, Feb. 15, at

Live Oak —

What’s better than watching kids hunt 60,000 plastic filled Easter eggs with friends and family on a spring morning in April? Watching those 60,000 eggs fall from the sky from a helicopter just might top that.

Melody Church’s second Egg Drop will be on Saturday, April 12. The eggs will be dropped from a helicopter onto Melody Christian Academy’s soccer field. Children ages 0-10 including those with special needs are invited to come and experience an extreme Easter egg hunt. Along with the egg drop, the church will offer other children's activities such as bounce houses and a special guest appearance from the Easter bunny.  

“I am looking forward to having the community enjoy this event and hope that they will come back the following Sunday to also enjoy our Easter Sunday church service,” said Pastor Darrin Baldwin.

Melody Church is coordinating the event and has purchased the eggs and candy. Currently they are looking for other business sponsors and community partners to donate funds to cover the cost of the helicopter and other activities. Volunteers are also needed to help the day of the event.  “Last year’s event was great, this year it is going to be awesome. Bigger, better and double the eggs,” outreach coordinator Heidi Hofer said.

Pre-registration will start Saturday at and will be limited to the first 2,000 kids. Be sure to get your child pre-registered to avoid lines and ensure them a place on the field.

Melody Church invites families of Suwannee County and surrounding areas to join them on Saturday, April 12, at 10:30 a.m. for this fun family event.
