Children age 12 and under are invited to participate in the egg hunt, and all ages are welcome to join in the fun. The Legacy Pavilion practice field will be divided into two areas for children ages 5 and under and 6 to 12. Participants are asked to provide their own baskets for the egg hunt.

In addition to the egg hunt, children can have their faces painted, hang out with Blaze, and take photos with UAB football players and staff. There will also be giveaways, including two UAB Football VIP packages, inflatables, games, food trucks and more.

“The Dragon Egg Hunt has become an event our community looks forward to, and we are beyond excited to host it in conjunction with our Spring Game,” head coach Bill Clark said. “Birmingham has been instrumental in our success as a program, and this is just a small way to give back for all of their continued support.”

The Dragon Egg Hunt concludes a full weekend of events for the UAB Football program. The festivities begin Friday, April 5, with the Third Annual Bill Clark Golf Tournament at Bent Brook Golf Course. The Pepsi Spring Game is the following day, Saturday, April 6, at 1 p.m. at Legion Field.

There will be opportunities at the event to renew UAB Football season tickets or purchase new for 2019. Season tickets are on sale starting as low as $99.

The reigning Conference USA Champion Blazers open the 2019 season Thursday, Aug. 29, against Alabama State at Legion Field.
