EWING, Va. — Colorful candy-filled eggs on the Karlan Mansion lawn will lead children to Wilderness Road State Park’s eighth annual Easter at Karlan celebration beginning at 2 p.m. on March 26
Children 10 and under are invited to join the Easter Bunny for a candy-filled Easter egg hunt that highlights an afternoon filled with fun, games and prizes.
The picturesque Karlan Mansion will provide a spectacular backdrop for the candy-filled egg hunt which features four age groups providing fair competition for prizes that include various sized chocolate rabbits. Age groups include: Infant-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-10.
Each group will also contain a special marked egg with the finder receiving a chocolate bunny as a prize while the one individual from each group that finds the “lucky” egg will receive a large oversized chocolate rabbit.
Returning this year is the addition of extra prize eggs per age group. Specially marked eggs score their finders a small chocolate bunny. Prizes will be awarded at the conclusion of the egg hunt.
The popular event will also include light refreshments and photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny. Games and activities are scheduled throughout the event with a visit by the Easter Bunny concluding the day’s activities.
The Friends of Wilderness Road State Park is providing the eggs and prizes for the celebration.
Pre-registration is required and participants are asked to bring their own basket. Admission to this year’s event is $1 per vehicle, which will go toward the expenses incurred with the event.
