Bring your own Easter Baskets and stay for the age-divided Easter Egg Hunt beginning at 11:30. There will also be an adult hunt that features three golden eggs with family memberships as prizes! Find a Peter Rabbit egg, and it will be filled with a special prize! Be sure to stay for the best decorated Easter basket and Easter hat contest. Judging will be at noon.
