The City of Deltona's Parks & Recreation Department hosts an annual EGGstravaganza event with the largest egg hunt containing over 25,000 eggs. The event takes place annually the weekend before Easter and begins promptly at 10:00 a.m. at the Dewey O. Boster Sports Complex, 1200 Saxon Blvd. (Parents: DON’T BE LATE.) Our Bunny starts the activities on time! EGGstravaganza is the fastest annual event conducted by the City. The egg “hunting” typically lasts just over 10 minutes and the festivities and entertainment continue until noon keeping all the kids interested.
The egg hunting is for children ages 2 to 10. “Hunters” will be divided into three age categories and should bring their own baskets for gathering eggs. Eggs will be loaded with candy, small toys and some will be specially marked for prizes. Mr. and Mrs. Bunny will be available for picture time after all the eggs have been found, so parents bring your cameras.

The City of Deltona and the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office host National Night Out in August at City Hall in the Courtyard. In the past there have been upwards of approximately 200 residents in attendance at the event, all to encourage the prevention of crime in our City. At the event you are likely to see demonstrations by the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office’s K-9, Motors and SWAT teams and the Deltona Fire Department.
Additionally, different companies and organizations operate booths with information for families, residents and businesses. These venues help create support for local anti-crime programs, and police-community partnerships. The ultimate message: Deltona residents are organized and fighting back against crime.
National Night Out was introduced in 1984, by the National Association of Town Watch, a non-profit crime prevention organization. The first Night Out involved 400 communities, and last year’s event attracted more than eleven thousand communities.
