To put an extra hop in local children’s steps on Easter, Bennion Deville Homes Agents, Managers, and Staff recently put on egg hunts in the cities of La Quinta, Indio, and Coachella Easter weekend. The events were free and open to the public.
The La Quinta egg hunt took place at La Quinta Community Park, with over 7,000 eggs spread into four different zones for different age groups. Hundreds of children scrambled to collect the eggs, some stashed in hiding spots on the playground for older kids, with others laying in wait in an open field for younger participants. Janet Zappala of KMIR News was on hand to encourage the youngsters and judge the chalk drawing contest, which took place after the exhilarating hunts. Representatives from Bennion Deville Homes’ La Quinta offices were in attendance to hand out balloons and candy and organize the chalk drawing contest. Kids also enjoyed their time jumping in an inflatable bounce house and meeting the Easter Bunny.
In conjunction with The Desert Recreation District, Bennion Deville Homes also hosted Eggstravaganzas in Indio and Coachella for the sixth straight year. On top of the egg hunts, both events included exciting family-oriented activities like face painting, potato sack races, hula-hoop contests, and a visit from the Easter Bunny. Bennion Deville Homes’ Indio office had booths at both parks, with representatives handing out balloons, candy, and holding coloring contests for the kids. The Indio hunt was held at Indio Community Center Park and the Coachella hunt was held at Veterans’ Park. Hundreds of children showed up for both egg hunt events, searching for thousands of eggs hidden throughout the parks.
Realtor® JulieRae MacLeod of Bob Bennion and Bob Deville’s Windermere Real Estate SoCal Encinitas office, located at 258 North El Camino Real, Suite C, recently celebrated the Fourth of July by providing free snowcones to the Emerald Heights neighborhood party in Escondido.
The Emerald Heights Fourth of July party was the ultimate celebration of our nation’s independence and had something fun for everyone, including a parade, high school marching band, petting zoo, catered BBQ, and live music. “I wanted to do something fun for the neighborhood that would help cool us down on a hot Fourth of July afternoon,” says JulieRae, whose frozen snowcones provided a much-needed treat to keep the 450 attendees cool.
“The neighborhood party symbolizes the true spirit of community and what makes our country great. People from different backgrounds and experiences coming together to celebrate the freedoms we enjoy is a special moment in everyone’s year, and I know many wonderful memories were made. As a real estate professional, I enjoy contributing to the ‘American Dream’ and enhancing the lifestyles of my fellow community members. If I can help brighten someone else’s day with a frosty snowcone in the process, it makes my job that much more fun,” JulieRae concludes.
