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 1,000 visitors, or purchase ice cream from The Outside Scoop. Join IPTV’s Dan Wardell for storytime in the Walnut Hill Schoolhouse! Enter a ticket raffle to win movie tickets from AMC Cobblestone.

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

Presenting Sponsor: EMC Insurance Companies

Event Partners: Iowa Egg Council, Machine Shed Restaurant, The Outside Scoop
