Living History Farms

Welcome Spring with a day of fun for the whole family! The 1875 town of Walnut Hill comes together to celebrate Easter with ongoing egg and toy hunts (divided by age), horse-drawn wagon rides, egg rolling, pancake flipping, a visit from the Easter bunny, and more. Living History Farms’ Family Easter is full of traditional holiday activities with a small-town twist. Enjoy free pop and popcorn for all and free breakfast wraps for the first 500 visitors.

We will once again offer an allergy-free egg hunt (ongoing throughout the event) that will be safe for those with food allergies.
