Easter Events in the Norwalk Area

By Jason Leyva

Are you looking for upcoming Easter events in Norwalk and L.A. County? I’ve gathered some of the best events that are happening here in April, mainly during the beginning of the month. These events are everywhere from Norwalk to Palos Verdes.

1. City of Norwalk Egg-stravagant Egg Hunt

This event will be taking place on Saturday April 8, 2023, from 12:30-4:30pm on the Norwalk Civic Center lawn (12700 Norwalk Blvd). The event is free admission. This is an Easter activity which will include egg hunts, crafts, games, entertainment, bunny photos, and more. There is a set schedule for the egg hunt: at 1 pm the “Tiny Tots” from 1.5-3 years old will search for eggs; at 2pm, the 4-5 year olds will be “Funny Bunnies” and get to search; at 2:30 pm, “Egg Heads” ages 6-8 get their turn, and finally at 3pm, 9-12 year olds will be “Wacky Wabbits.” Although you might not fit into these age categories, you can always take siblings who fit into this age category. This event will still be fun to go to as there is much to do.

2. Norwalk City-Wide Eggnormous Egg Hunt

This takes place between April 3-April 8. Now what is this event? This event is a giant city wide egg hunt–there are hidden egg posters all around the city and if you capture one you can claim a special prize. To participate in this event you must be a Norwalk resident and you can only claim one egg poster. If you do capture an egg poster, you must redeem for your prize in the Eggstravagant Egg Hunt (see above) on April 8 at the Norwalk Civic Center lawn. This event is a fun egg hunt that gives you plenty of time to look for the egg posters, so why not check it out if you have some time?

3. Giant Easter Egg Hunt and Easter Celebration

This is an event taking place in the Church of Scientology of Los Angeles on 4810 Sunset Boulevard. The event will be held on April 9. This event is a giant Easter egg hunt and celebration of Easter, there will be 6000 Easter eggs to hunt and there are 12 golden eggs with special prizes. Families and children are welcome to come to the event as the event is filled with many fun activities such as Egg decorating, a fluffy animal petting zoo, face painting, a donut eating contest, and more.

4. Easter Sunday Breakfast 2023

This event will take place on April 9 at 10:00 am through 12:30pm at the Mary and Joseph Retreat Center (Address: 5300 Crest Rd, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275). This event is about a traditional buffet style breakfast that celebrates the importance of Easter with family and friends. It costs $30 per adult, $15 for children ages 4-12, and children under the ages of 4 can enter for free. Something important to note is that reservations are required for this event, so you must reserve by Monday, April 3. 

5. Easter Run for Hope Los Angeles

This event will take place on Saturday, April 8 from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm at Palisades Park, Ocean Avenue, Santa Monica. This event is a run to celebrate the holiday of Easter’s hope and new life. The run contains prizes such as the finisher medal which is a shirt/swag bag, and you also get access to a community of runners all around the world. An important thing that this event does is help orphanages in east Asia from the proceeds of the run. So not only are you doing something good for your health, you are also helping orphanages. Registration fees between now and April 7 are as follows:

5K run = $35.00

10K run = $35.00

Half-Marathon run = $35.00

With all that being said, why not check out this event that is good for your health and good for children in need.  

Those are all the local Easter events that I think you should check out. I looked through the internet to find Easter events in L.A. County and I think these are the best ones you should go to. Now I have one more event to list which is an honorable mention. 

6. Easter Sunday Service with Fearless L.A.

The reason this event is an honorable mention is because this event is located in Downtown L.A., so it is going to most likely be the hardest event to get into. This event will take place at 1611 S Hope Street Los Angeles, on April 9 at 9am, 11am, and 1pm. This event is like an Easter festival that includes food trucks, bounce houses, egg hunts, kid activities, etc. Something important to note is if you wanna participate in the egg hunt you have to stay after the 1pm service. This event will be fun for family and friends, so why not check out this festival and have some fun.

I hope you can check out at least one of these events and have a Happy Easter.
