What will Halloween look like? Welcome to Eggtober!

By Virginia Godwin, Recreation Supervisor

With the arrival of October, only one topic could compete with football in the minds of many residents — what will Halloween look like this year?

Since a national state of emergency was declared in March, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to create new ways to socialize and enjoy traditions. So, the Parks & Recreation Department has devised a plan.

A socially distant, candy-filled plan.

From Oct. 26-31, we’ll bring the fun to you with Eggtober, a crafty combination of Easter and Halloween. We offer two personal egg hunts for all ages, and you can purchase as many 25-egg bundles as you would like. The eggs are filled with allergy-friendly candy. Each bundle is $15.

FRONT YARD HUNT (College Station residents only)

Staff hides eggs to your preferred difficulty level in your front yard. You select the day and time that works best for you, and your yard will be ready. Delivery times are available Monday-Saturday from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Hunt level options include easy, medium, or difficult.


The “do it yourself” option is for you if you don’t have a College Station address, you’d like to gift it to someone, or if you want to personalize your hunt. We’ll provide the treat-filled eggs and door hanger, which you can pick up at the Stephen C. Beachy Central Park Office at 1000 Krenek Tap Road. Pick-ups are available Oct. 26-30 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Call 979-764-3486 when you arrive, and we’ll bring it out to the curb.

Register online or visit the Stephen C. Beachy Central Park Office from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on weekdays. Registration ends Thursday, Oct. 22.

Schedule your hunt today and make this an Eggtober to remember!
