OK, let’s admit it. 

When the rains come to Malibu, people freak out.

“There’s water coming out of the sky, freak out!” they’ll say.

As the sun set over the horizon in Bluffs Park, young residents of Malibu lined up just outside the Pony baseball field in hopes of finding glowing eggs filled with prizes.

After the last glimmer of light flickered away into the night, the gates opened and dozens of children scrambled to gather as many eggs as they could. 

Jackie Valencia brought her 11-year-old son Nicolas to the glow-in-the-dark event, as well as her two younger children. She said her favorite event was the egg hunt.

Records were meant to be broken.

The daughter of Malibu High School high jump coach Anthony Shafer, Kayleigh, held the record for high jump height for 15 years. But on Wednesday, April 30, junior Michaela Cosentino jumped 5 feet, cementing her name in the record books. 

“I have mixed emotions,” Anthony Shafer said of his daughter’s record being broken. “It’s the last of the records that my daughter held here.”

Kayleigh Shafer held five records at the high school over the years, her father said. But Anthony Shafer was glad it was Cosentino who set the mark.
