Description Kids shouldn’t have all of the fun, so join us for Holbrook's first ever Adult Easter Egg Hunt


You just can't make this stuff up anymore. I knew things were getting bad when adults were having child-like birthday parties.
Did some of these people not get enough love as a kid? What the heck is going on here?

I've been to a few Easter Egg hunts when my kids were little. Yes I admit some of the parents got out of hand. The way they acted over the eggs was a little shocking sometimes, practically running over toddlers to get to them. Who would have thought they would create an adult only one?
Although I think this venue will do well, it just seems weird to me.

Year 2019 Kids ordering Mocha Lattes, and adults doing Easter Egg Hunts.....hmmm

Personally, i've enjoyed helping hide the eggs more than find them since I was about 10 or so and didn't believe in the Easter Bunny so my parents let me help hide them for my sister and brother. That was fun. It was great watching them struggle. Helped set up an Easter egg hunt for my friend's kid last year too. But...haven't participated in one for a long time

Adult Easter Egg Hunts


Our society fairly teems with idiots I would hesitate to call "adults" in any sense of the word.
These cretins stole Halloween from kids. Totally hijacked it in recent years.
I guess it's no surprise that Easter was next.

Thank you for that, I was wondering if it was just me being old and crabby. Apparently not, the world has flipped upside down.

No but I did think it was funny that the eggs might have scratch off tickets in them.

Yea, nothing says celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, like lottery tickets and drunk adults running amok.

Adult Easter eggs, adult crayons, adult diapers. There's those jumbo sticks of sidewalk chalk that should be a good fit too.

Maybe it's a Key Party disguised as an Easter egg hunt?

I saw the title and thought it sounded fun, then I realised it was an ACTUAL easter egg hunt... for over 21's.
Couldn't they have hired some strippers or something with the easter eggs containing free dances?... with the golden egg offering something a little more substantial?

Who cares? They're having fun and not hurting anyone.

Adults still go to professional wrestling in droves and I'm quite certain not one of them has believed it was real since they were 10.

Yeah, stick to Peeps and Cadbury Eggs and celebrate your coopted Pagan fertility holiday properly.

Not the first time I've seen this, actually. There's towns in FL where they do it (or used to, anyway) for the elderly to have fun. When I was a kid, a little bodunk town at the time called North Port used to have an egg hunt for the elderly after the kids' egg hunt was done. Pretty sure Cape Haze, where my paternal grandparents lived, also did one for the elderly back then, too.

Sure, it seems stupid at first glance, i admit, but when you think objectively? It kinda doesn't, because what makes the hunt kids only in the first place? Beyond that, what makes it acceptable only for elderly adults to do? Simply because someone somewhere at some time said so? Halloween is widely regarded as a kids' holiday, and yet, it's perfectly acceptable for adults of any age to have fun playing dress-up for a few hours for the evening, too. There's nothing written anywhere that says only the kids are allowed the good old fashioned clean fun, now is there?

Perhaps our issue isn't that adults are doing childish things worth finger-waggling at, but rather, that we have too many unwarranted restrictions on fun activities. Up to what, age 12 only can have holiday fun, then none at all til what, 70, 80+? Who TF came up with that restriction and what for?
If this is appealing to many versus the scowling few, it's worth acknowledging there might be far too much emphasis and pressure on being a good worker drone anymore. Just because you're say, 45, doesn't mean you can't do something silly for seasonal or holiday fun anymore. Doing so won't harm your worker bee status, will it?

What is life ultimately if you age block simple fun from it?

Yeah, good point. Many things seen as adult activities can be scrutinized via a "for what purpose" debate, such as horse or auto racing. TF makes THOSE adult activities? It's things going in circles, ooooooh, so grown up to participate in watching! Not even doing, just watching.

When was it ever just for kids? I'm always out there laying waste to the toddlers so my kids can get all the eggs.

I always thought Easter egg hunts was a contact sport.

There are some bland, boring, humorless, crabby old farts in this thread, I'll tell ya. It's a goddamned ridiculous world we live in... "adults" sitting on your ass with your hand out looking for others to take responsibility for your medical bills, living expenses, children, etc is happening all around us and even being politically pandered to but we're going to get verclempt over working, productive adults letting their hair down and having a little bit of clean, innocent fun in a shoutback to the simpler days of their youth by hunting for Easter Eggs?

I somehow don't think adults having some Easter egg hunting fun is going to be viewed as a sign, symptom, or cause of the decline of western civilization.

You sound angry. There is this class at Kansas U. that you may be interested in.

This is the problem that I see. It isn't that adults aren't allowed to have fun. There are a million ways for adults to have fun, many of which are illegal to children. Why can't adults stay in their lane?

Easter egg hunts used to be for kids only. The joy was adults watching the kids have fun. Sometime over the years adults have become more selfish and want "goodies" themselves. I feel like most adults are not really maturing like we did in the past.
Look at Christmas, I don't think anyone of a certain age can say that Christmas is better now. It isn't. It is all about presents and all commercialized, and starts sometime in July. There was a time Christmas was really special.

If my daughter brought home a potential spouse and he wanted to go to an Easter Egg hunt I'd have to have a talk to her about separating the men from boys.

I've seen adult Easter egg hunts being held at plenty of the Memory Care communities and Assisted Living communities. It's a way to keep the older folks for whom life can be rather a chore active and engaged and happier and healthier. Plus for the Alzheimer's and other dementia patients it can be a way to bring them back for family even if only for a few moments.

They should make it really fun and hide all the meds in the eggs.
