Easter Eggs

Spending Easter in Chicago this March? Grab your baskets, your kids, and some running shoes because we have two of the biggest and best egg hunts around!

The Soldier Field Egg-Stravaganza (March 23, 10AM)

Step onto the playing field and test your candy-catching skills at Chicago's historic Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears. The annual Soldier Field Egg-stravaganza is open to all kids ages 10 years and younger and parents fans are welcome to cheer from the sidelines. 

All the play-by-play action will be broadcast on the stadium's two super-sized 23' x 82' video screens. The South Courtyard will host a spring festival featuring large inflatables for all ages, face painters, a balloon artist, the Radio Disney Road Crew Show and much more from 9-11AM. 

While the 10AM candy grab is free for all, before the candy grab, children will also have the opportunity to have breakfast with the Easter bunny and take photos at Soldier Field's United Club from 8:30 - 10AM.

Admission to the breakfast is $17.50 for adults, $12 for children under age 10, and free for children under age 3 with a paying adult.  Reservations are required for breakfast and must be made by Friday, March 22 by calling 312-235-7162 or emailing sfspecialevents@dncinc.com. Guests are asked to park in the Waldron Garage for $10 and to enter the stadium on the south end at Gate O.
