The Mountlake Terrace Easter Egg Hunt 2011: April 23 at 10 am


The 2011 Mountlake Terrace Easter Egg is coming up in just a few weeks. Once again, the Red Onion is organizing the event which is sponsored by their non-profit, the Cheeseburger Babies Foundation.

They Easter Egg Hunt will take place on Saturday, April 23, at 10 am at the Evergreen Playfield.

The Red Onion is asking for candy and plastic egg donations. Drop off your donations at the Red Onion.

Check out this video from last year’s event:


  1. I love the Red Onion, and what they’ve been doing for the community- but this egg ‘hunt’ is very badly done. It is over in mere moments, the kids that shove the most people out of the way get the prizes, and many children are left empty handed.

  2. I agree with previous comment. I am so impressed with how involved Red Onion is with the community, and ate there a couple days ago for the first time. It was delicious! With regards to the egg hunt, I heard the same thing from another mom. We weren’t there last year, but was talking to someone about hearing that there was an egg hunt there. She said she was there last year, with her very young daughter, who ended up with one egg.

  3. I took my 3 1/2 year old grand-daughter there last yea rand she got pushed out of the way and only got a egg because a older child who had a basket full of eggs handed her one. It was over in a heart beat and she was really disappointed. Since this was her first egg hunt, we practiced at home running and picking up the eggs and putting them in her basket and not just picking up one and opening it. It didn’t do any good because she just got pushed and run over by other kids.

  4. I’m sure that the egg hunt will improve with time. Last year was the first year and I have to congratulate Red Onion for putting it together in the first place.. Maybe this year the parents of younger children can volunteer to help oganized and manage age bracket egg hunts?

  5. The Easter Egg hunt has been going on in MLT for many years, way before I moved here. I think that one think that was done in the past is to have the children enter the field by ages and allowed a certain amount of eggs. It started with the littlest ones and after a set amount of minutes, they came off of the field and the next older ones came on and so forth until the oldest kids were complete.

    Then, if there were eggs left, the field was open game. good luck!

  6. Photos from this year’s hunt are up on my website:

    If you were there, please read the info on the right of the gallery’s main page.

    From my vantage point (right in the thick of all the chaos), this year’s hunt (euphemism for SCRAMBLE) was much better with age groups and lots of eggs. I DO think that one thing that can be added (at least for the two youngest groups) is a ‘low egg count’ table… it’s all to make the kids happy, so a some extras set aside for the youngest to come and retrieve a couple candy filled eggs should they not be as quick as others could alleviate any heartaches for next year.

    I though, saw mostly smiles, laughter and happiness on Saturday. Great job MLT!!
