MAULDIN’S HELICOPTER EGG DROP (cont.) His Radio provided music and announcements for the event. Five baseball fields were designated as egg drops, with the event split up into three age groups: 0-2 year olds, pre-school to K5 students, and 1st to 5th graders. Children enjoyed watching thousands of eggs dropped from the sky, then racing across the fields to fill their bags. Photos from the event can be found on the Mauldin Sports Center’s Facebook page.
