Spring Egg-Stravaganza “a fun Burbank event”

The Spring Egg-Stravaganza “a fun Burbank event.” That is how Judie Wilke, Park, Recreation and Community Services director, summed up the festivities in McCambridge Park yesterday. As for the new rules, Wilke says they “controlled things” better and that “no one was turned away.” She says a complete analysis would have to be done later to determine if the event ran better with or without the rules. This year, parents were required to register their children for the Easter egg hunts — the reason most come to... Read More →

Easter egg hunts in Burbank

A lot folks were out at the Easter egg hunts in Burbank.  The hunts were the big draw at the Spring Egg-Stravaganza this morning. The event was held in McCambridge Park 1515 North Glenoaks Boulevard. Overall, the crowds did not appear to be as large as they were at the Spring Egg-Stravaganza last year. This may be due to the new rules or the many activities on this Easter weekend. Here are some highlights of the four egg hunts at the  Egg-Stravaganza 2014 in the Media City.    ... Read More →

Confusion surrounding Burbank’s Spring Egg-Stravaganza 2014

 There’s confusion surrounding Burbank’s Spring Egg-Stravaganza 2014. The long time tradition is scheduled to get underway tomorrow, April 19, 9.a.m-noon at McCambridge Park 1515 North Glenoaks Boulevard. No publicity blitz for this event. City staffers have depended mostly on announcements at city council meetings and promotion on the city website. Originally, the city site had only a link to a fast-talking You Tube video for the Spring Egg-Stravaganza. Earlier this month, I emailed Drew Sugars, Burbank public information officer, about that  situation. A short time later, a Read More →

Burbank Spring Egg-Stravaganza a huge hit

Thousands of Easter fans, young and old, got up early and took part in the revived Spring Egg-Stravaganza at McCambridge Park on North Glenoaks Boulevard in Burbank last Saturday. While parents and onlookers snapped photos, kids dashed for Easter eggs, hung out with the Easter bunny, got some golfing lessons, and played other games. Burbank Park, Recreation ad Community Services Director, Judie Wilke, and her staff were opposed to bringing back the long-running Easter tradition. However, last month the city council voted to bring back the Spring Egg-Stravagazana.... Read More →

City Buzz: Spring Egg-Stravaganza gets a reprieve and the Burbank election revamp

Spring Egg-Stravaganza back on!   It’s not too often this Burbank City Council ignores the advice of a city department head — but it happened at last night’s council meeting during the discussion of the Spring Egg-Stravaganza. The event has been hotly debated since it got scrapped last year by the heartless staffers in the Park, Recreation and Community Services Department — allegedly due to a shortfall in funds and some dribble about too many out-of-towners, under the age of 10,  showing up to hobnob with...
