Updates for December 2018

December: Easter Sunday will April 21, 2019, If you plan to hold an Easter egg hunt, add or update your information as soon as you can. In 2018 most Easter egg hunts were held on either Saturday, March 24, 2018 or Saturday, March 31, 2018. ALWAYS click the links to check date and time with the event's own website, as there are often last minute changes due to weather or logistical problems, just click on the link to the event's website and (in most cases), you want to click on the "events" link or "calendar" link on their website. Or use their site search for "Easter". Do let them know you found them here, so they will update us next year.  Since many egg hunts do not publish the current year's dates until the very last minute, we may not get their current information, which is why we have links to their websites, facebook pages and calendars. See their events calendar. There are also Easter breakfasts and brunches and Easter parades to watch!

RELATED:You may also want to go to a local farm to Pick Your Own fruit and vegetables; strawberries start very soon in most areas!
And if you are looking for local children's consignment sales, also often held by churches in the Spring and Fall, click here!

It is a relaxing family event where the kids can participate in a noncompetative egg hunt and interact with the farm animals.  As you come onto the farm and check in at the table, the children are given an Easter basket with color book, crayons, fun items and crackers to feed the animals. There is a designated egg hunt area where each child can gather five plastic eggs with candy in them. There is a limit of five eggs per child, partly because of the number of children that come through over the weekend (we fill over 800 eggs) and also upon parents request. But... once you have enjoyed all the activities, as you are leaving, make sure you stop by the check-in table to pick a bigger prize, such as a chocolate Easter bunny or another prize of their choice. Other Farm activities include feeding all the farm animals.Cost: $35 per child. For info, call.  PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED*
