Over 15,000 Easter Eggs with be dropping from a Helicopter this April!

Beaufort Academy is hosting the 2nd Helicopter Easter Egg Drop April 13th and thousands of Easter Eggs with be dropping from a Helicopter for all ages to enjoy!


Pre-register your children to take part in one of FOUR age-specific egg hunts with over 15,000 eggs! The Easter Egg Drop is an Easter Egg Hunt open to the first 1,500 pre-registered children in our community between the ages of 2-10. There will be TWO golden eggs with GREAT PRIZES including a NINTENDO SWITCH & an APPLE ITOUCH, plus other cool prizes! 

The fun doesn’t stop at the Egg Drop, we’ll also be having a Bounce House Area with over 8 inflatables, Balloon Artists, Professional Face Painters, KONA Ice, FOOD TRUCKS, DJ Jesse Gavigan & Music, and the EASTER BUNNY!



There will be a $10 charge per child, and that will include unlimited bounce house use, professional balloon artists by Carol’s Balloon Art, professional face painters, Easter Bunny pictures, and the egg drop! Last year, we charged for each individual activity but found it will be easier for parents to pay one price for all activities during Eventbrite registration.

Adults are not required to pay for the activities. The festival is FREE and open to the public. Children who are not taking part in the egg drop, or under the age of 2 or over 10 can pay for an activity bracelet the day of the festival.

The event starts at 10 am until 3 pm (Please arrive early for check-in, count on long lines!)


If your child is not 2 years old yet, or cannot go on the field without you, please do NOT register.

11:30am – Ages (2-5) – YELLOW
12:30pm – Ages (6-10) – GREEN

How do I register? Where do I get my registration code?
We created The Great Helicopter Easter Egg Drop as a local event to serve our community. Pre-Registration is open on Eventbrite and you will receive an email after you fill out the registration form. Event registration will close as soon as we reach max capacity. There will be no on-site registration unless we have room.. This year’s event will be limited to the first 1,500 children between the ages of 2 – 10 to register. During event morning, please check-in to receive an age-specific color bracelet since we have multiple egg drop times.

Do I need to be there early?
Generally, people begin lining up about an hour before registration opens/ Registration opens at 10:00 am.

Where should I park?
You may park in the Beaufort Academy parking lot and designated grass areas. We will also have 2 church locations for overflow parking. The event staff will provide a shuttle service to and from the event in this overflow locations. Parking attendants will wear bright vests to guide you to a spot. Please follow directions the day of the event and do not park on Sams Point Road. We suggest you come early to get a better parking spot. Parking is limited, so please carpool if possible!

What if there is bad weather?
If inclement weather occurs, please check the Beaufort Academy website for details… If you are already registered, we will email you with any date or venue changes.

Are parents/guardians allowed to gather eggs with their children?
NO. Parents will NOT be allowed on the field this year. Please do not register your child if they cannot go on the field on their own. We will have plenty of student volunteers who can help the children make sure they get eggs in their bag. This will also ensure over-zealous parents don’t grab all the eggs and ruin the event for other children.

Parents from the other age groups will be able to watch and encourage their children from the boundary lines, just a few feet from the actual egg hunt field. Our amazing Egg Drop Volunteers will ensure your children stay safe and have fun during their hunt.

What if I have children in different age groups? How do I watch them all?
If you have younger kids, they can go with the older kids, but please ask check-in to give you the correct bracelet color. Please note that the older kids can be a bit more anxious and quick with eggs!

What is in the Eggs?
Small toys, stickers, candy, gift certificates, and 2 GOLDEN EGGS. One will have a ticket for a Nintendo Switch, and the other for an iPod Touch. There will be other great new prizes this year.
