The 11th annual Northeast Cobb Community Egg Drop, sponsored by Superior Plumbing and C&S Paving, will be April 11 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Sprayberry High School's football field and stadium area.

The event will feature a helicopter dropping thousands of eggs onto the field to kick-off the various egg hunts. There will be 90,000-plus eggs and candy. There will also be food, games, a DJ and other activities.

The funds raised from the Egg Drop go to support both the Shop with a Yellow Jacket and the Shop with a Longhorn programs for Sprayberry and Kell High Schools. Last year more than $14,000 went right back into the community from the event.

The event schedule is:

  • Egg hunts - 11:30 a.m. will be the hunt for ages 3 and under, noon will be a Special Needs hunt, 1:30 p.m. the helicopter will drop eggs with hunts for ages four to seven to follow, 2 p.m. will be a Special Needs hunt, 3:30 p.m. the helicopter will drop eggs with hunts for ages eight to 10 to follow. Toddler hunts, in the Food Court area, will be 11:30 a.m., 1:30 and 3:30 p.m.
  • Free photos with Easter Bunny will be 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. presented by ANY PEST.
  • Lewe’s Comedy Circus will have interactive shows in between the egg hunts from noon, 2 and 4 p.m.
