The NOMA Egg Hunt and Family Festival

Disclosure :: This post is sponsored by NOMA.

This year’s egg hunt at NOMA is more than just a hunt. The NOMA Egg Hunt and Family Festival presented by Whitney Bank is a fun and festive event for families featuring arts & crafts, games, face painting, a petting zoo, food, drinks, sweets, music, and more. The festival is set within the picturesque Sydney and Walda Besthoff NOMA-20150328_Easter_Egg_Hunt_RAlokhin_0089Sculpture Garden – one of the most popular public spaces in New Orleans for families and visitors alike. This year, NOMA extended the event hours from 10 am until 2 pm offering more activities and entertainment for guests.

The morning will kick off with children hunting for 19,000 eggs hidden in the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at 10:30 a.m.! To ensure that every child gets a chance to fill their basket with eggs, there will be two separate egg hunts: one for children ages 5 and under and another one for children ages 6 and up.

After the egg hunt, children and families can stay for a family festival. Our new activities include a hula hoop station, drawing activities, live music, student performances, and story time just to name a few. There will also be photo opportunities with special guests the Elmer Bunny, Alice and the Mad Hatter, and Curious George. Don’t forget your camera! There will also be a bloody mary and mimosa bar and an adult activities tent for parents.

The NOMA Egg Hunt & Family Festival presented by Whitney Bank is Saturday, March 12, 2016 from 10 am until 2 pm in the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden. Tickets are $10 per person for NOMA members and $12 per person for non-members. Children ages 2 and under get in for free. Tickets the day of the event are $15 at the door. Ticket prices include all entertainment, activities, and refreshments. Refreshments include breakfast and lunch snacks, iced coffee, iced tea and water. Tickets are non-refundable and the event will go on rain or shine!

NOMA’s Egg Hunt & Family Festival presented by Whitney Bank will be one of the year’s can’t-miss family events so hop on over with your family for a fun-filled day.

  1. I’d like to win! Here’s my fun way to have an Easter Egg Hunt: Blindfold either Mom or Dad. Have the other parent give directions to where the eggs are. Watch the kiddies have a ball watching Mom and Dad being silly!
