Special Weekends

Easter Egg Hunt Weekend MARCH 31-APRIL 1, 2018:  EGG HUNT WEEKEND

Children of different ages (ages 1 to 3 and 4 to 6) will have a chance to hunt for eggs all day (10 AM, 10:30, 11 AM, 11:30, 12 noon, 12:30, 1 PM, 1:30, 2 PM, 2:30, 3 PM, 3:30, 4 PM, 4:30 and 5 PM) on both Saturday and Sunday. Our $6 per person admission fee for the farm applies, but there is no extra charge for the egg hunt. TThe petting farm, rides and play areas are open for you to enjoy.T When you are ready to participate in the egg hunt, come to the Egg Hunt area and your child will line up with other children and pick up eggs.  The eggs will then be turned in for a goodie bag. The first egg hunt each time will be for the 1-3 year olds.  Once they are finished and while they are turning in their eggs for the goodie bags, the 4-6 year olds start their egg hunt.   It all happens very quickly. We make sure each child gets at least a few eggs and since they turn them in for goodie bags, it doesn't matter how many they get.   It's our goal that they have fun, so we do everything we can to make sure the children have the chance to find eggs. The petting farm, gem mining and rides will also be open on EASTER MONDAY.
