Spring Celebration & Egg Roll at The Parks at Walter Reed

Celebrate spring with friends and neighbors on the gorgeous Great Lawn at The Parks at Walter Reed – and this is our 100th anniversary for this historic event! The first spring celebration and egg roll was held in 1923, and we are keeping the tradition alive. This year, the event will be during happy hour time, with a fun DJ, moonbounce for the kiddos, beverages to purchase, and amazing local food trucks. Come prepared to hunt for eggs and get moving with games, relay races, yoga, and more! All are welcome to this FREE event, but RSVP is requested so we have enough supplies and eggs!
