Easter Egg Hunt in Orange City


Come out and join us for our Annual Easter Egg Hunt in Orange City!!!

The Sorosis Club’s Easter Egg Hunt is an event where children and families come to Valentine Park to have some safe Easter fun. The Sorosis Club will provide the following activities:
The Easter Bunny will arrive with sirens aboard an Orange City Fire Truck! Kids will have a blast hunting for eggs, playing games, getting their picture taken with the Easter Bunny, have a hot dog, chips and a drink all for free!

To give all the children a chance at collecting eggs we have divided our egg hunt into timed groups, each with winning eggs that can be redeemed for a free Easter Basket filled with goodies!! Found eggs can be exchanged for a goodie bag at the end of the hunt.

The Sorosis Club invites local businesses to come out and be a part of this event. You can help with the hunt, games and/or prepare and set up Easter Egg Stations where you can hand out goodies (and your free promotional items) to egg hunters and their parents. There is no charge to be an Easter Egg Vendor, however, we ask that you bring your own table and chairs which you can decorate in a fun Easter or Spring theme. Our Easter Egg event is a wonderful and fun marketing opportunity for your business that will reach hundreds of families while also giving back to your community. Local High School or College students can earn volunteer hours too!! If you have any questions or would like to be an Easter Egg Vendor or Volunteer, please call 386-775-6814 or contact us via messenger through our Facebook Event. Please contact us by/before April 6th.

FIREFLY EXTRAVAGANZA March 18th, through March 31st, 2019.

The fireflies have begun to arrive at Blue Spring State Park! It is finally that time of year when the skies of Blue Spring come alive with fireflies. 

Beginning Monday, March 18th, 2019, through March 31st, 2019, Blue Spring State Park will be offering nightly firefly walks for visitors to view the fireflies along the spring run as weather permits. The fireflies will not be active if we have rain.

Visitors must arrive at the park by 7 p.m. and will be allowed to stay until 9 p.m. (one hour past park closing) to view the fireflies. You will receive a parking pass and event sticker that will allow you to stay at the park for one hour after the park closes. Visitors will meet for a short briefing in front of the Thursby House at 7:45 p.m. each night.

There are a few changes to the event this year. Visitors will be able to walk the boardwalk without a guide and view the fireflies at their own pace. The viewing area will be restricted to the boardwalk area only. The gift shop will also be open this year! Volunteers will be available to provide direction and information.

The event fee is $10 (cash please) in addition to the $6 park entrance fee. The $10 event fee will go to the Friends of Blue Spring State Park organization (CSO) and will be used for park enhancements and educational programs. If you are a current CSO member, park admission is free with your membership (please bring your membership card).
