    Fort McCoy youth collected eggs outside McCoy’s Community Center and more on March 23 during the Easter Eggstravaganza 2024 at the installation.

    The event was coordinated by the Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (DFMWR) and attendees were able to purchase breakfast, plus they participated in crafts, and had photos with the Easter Bunny.

    Directorate of Emergency Services personnel also escorted the Easter bunny to McCoy’s Community Center where the egg hunt took place. More than 260 people participated in the fun despite a recent snow shower and colder weather.

    “Easter Eggstravaganza was a smashing success,” stated a Fort McCoy DFMWR Facebook post about the event. “Thanks to all who attended.”

    In the comments on the similar Facebook post shared to the Fort McCoy official Facebook page, one commenter was glad to have attended the event.

    “Great event,” the event attendee said.

    Another attendee wrote, “Thank you for putting on a great event. The family enjoyed every minute of it!”

    The Eggstravaganza made a return in 2022 after having to be stopped for a few years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And to have it come back with continued great attendance has been greatly appreciated, DFMWR officials said. The 2023 Eggstravaganza was also highly attended by the Fort McCoy community.
