Spring may have come upon us in a highly unusual way this year with weather conditions unlike most of us have never seen; it is time to celebrate with flowers in bloom and some Springtastic activities! The City of Moreno Valley Parks and Community Services has planned a few family fun events most of us are ready for, heading out of the house without an umbrella and enjoying family days!

In exploring spring in Mo Val, the festivities were discovered. However, unless you go onto the Parks and Community site, you may miss out on some spectacular enjoyment, so here is some information about what's in store. And given our weather here in Moreno Valley has been a bit daunting, and inside activities the norm for the past few weeks, it is exciting to give residents a change of upcoming scenery.

April 1, 2023, get your spring wardrobe on and head out to FESTIVAL AND EGG HUNT at Sunnymead Park, 12655 Perris Blvd. This event will be held from 9 am until 12 noon, featuring a free egg hunt for children under 12, asking children to bring their basket or bag to scoop up those colorfully vibrant eggs as they delight in the hunt. In addition, this festival includes games, a Youth Fun Zone with inflatables, a rock wall, crafts, carnival games, and mouth-watering food vendors to entice the springtime palette.


Ages 2-4 at 9 am

Ages 5-8 at 9:30 am

Children with special needs at 9:30 am

Ages 9-12 at 10 am

For more information, please call 951-413-3280 or e-mail: and get ready for a morning of spectacular springtime festivities!


After enjoying the children's egg hunt and lively festival at Sunnymead Park, another exciting event begins later. This one is also being held on April 1, 2023, at Laselle Sports Park, 17155 Lasselle Street.

Featuring a live DJ, and delectable food trucks, adults can bring out that inner child and "scramble" up some entertainment. The Adult Flashlight Egg Scramble is also being held on April 1, 2023; however, Parks and Community Services has planned this one for 6:30 pm to make it far more intriguing. Since this adult egg-citing hunt will occur in the dark, bring a flashlight, headlamp, bag, or basket for your eggs; the site clearly states, "Nets are not permitted."

With 10,000 eggs to find, some will contain candy, while others will include a "Golden Ticket," The prizes vary from gaming systems, tablets, laptops, 55" HDTVs, outdoor equipment, gift cards, trips, and more! This event will only allow the first 1,000 adults to register to participate, and registration can be found at so hop it up and get your scramble on for what sounds like the event to be at for Spring in Moreno Valley.

The site asks you to arrange childcare, as babies, children, strollers, and animals will not be allowed past the gate. For more information, please call 951-413-3280 or e-mail: and prepare for one sensational time!


Adding to Moreno Valley's Springtime events, Parks, Community Services, and Library Departments will celebrate Earth Day. This springtime event sounds spectacular, with booths, games, crafts, raffles, demonstration garden tours, and tree giveaways among the activities!

All activities are designed to be "Earth Friendly" and anyone in attendance can be assured Moreno Valley advocates a better environment through education and fun. This Earth Day Celebration is held on Saturday, April 22, 2023, from 9 am through 1 pm at the City Demonstration Garden. The Garden is behind the Moreno Valley Conference and Recreation Center at 14075 Frederick Street. Again, for more information, please call 951-413-3280 or e-mail: and prepare yourself for an environmentally and family-friendly great time!

Spring in Moreno Valley may have begun as a wet, storm-filled season. However, it is ready to see the breathtaking flowers of spring in bloom and experience some fantastic events as we welcome this time of year into our community.
