About the Helicopter Egg Drop Event

Bring your family and friends for this fun springtime event featuring a helicopter that will drop plastic eggs filled with goodies from the sky onto a field for kids to collect. This is a free community event. Everyone is welcome.

The Helicopter Egg Drop is hosted by the Neighbors Southwest NAC (Neighborhood Association Committee) and is sponsored in part by the city’s Neighborhood Matching Grant Program. The Neighborhood Matching Grant Program supports efforts to improve and enhance community spaces and cultivates opportunities for neighbors to host community-building events or improvements. Successful past projects include theatre and concerts in the park, reading programs and book drives, tree plantings, neighborhood welcome signs, and more.
