In addition, to the very popular egg scramble, you can visit with the Fountain Hills Fire Department, which will have trucks to climb on and firefighters to show the kids their gear. No event would be complete without inflatable bouncers to play on. Local church groups and the Fountain Hills Library will be on hand with crafts and games. Come join us for lots of egg-citement!

Tips and Tricks


  • Use old Peeps candy. Fresh Peeps do not stick together as well. Make sure to let them dry out before you use them.
  • To help the Peeps stand flat, cut off the bottom of the Peep with a sharp knife dipped in water. Please make sure to have an adult assist with this tip for safety!
  • Use a non-wrinkling glue stick to attach backdrops and any items to the base.
  • Use a glue gun for gluing props together. PLEASE NOTE: Only use the glue gun for the props. The Peeps will melt from the hot glue. You don't want a puddle of marshmallow fluff!
  • Make sure to take a lot of photos from different angles. You can crop your photos to make the Peeps stand out.
