DALLAS – Easter is just around the corner and Rainbow Days is teaming up with the Easter Bunny to bring some springtime joy to Dallas area homeless children. The 15th Annual Easter Eggstravaganza will take place on Saturday, March 24, 2007 from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Exall Park , located at 1355 Adair at Live Oak Street , just east of downtown Dallas .

Rainbow Days is proud to announce that Councilwoman Angela Hunt, District 14, will be present to kick off this year’s 15th annual Easter Eggstravaganza for homeless families by sharing some remarks at the beginning of the event. The event will feature spring-time fun with face painting, music with a disk jockey, a petting zoo, delicious refreshments and other activities for Dallas-area children and their parents who are impacted by homelessness, domestic violence or HIV & AIDS. More than 200 local children and their parents from 17 shelters are expected to participate in this year’s annual Easter Eggstravaganza. The Eggstravaganza is a Family Outing program of Rainbow Days, it provides a wonderful family outing and afternoon “getaway” for these families who normally do not have the opportunity to be together away from the shelter.
