Egg Hunt Highlights Wilderness Road Easter Celebration

Colorful Eggs on the Karlan Mansion lawn beckon youngsters to Wilderness Road State Park’s sixth annual Easter at Karlan celebration on Saturday, April 19th beginning at 2 pm.

Children ages infant-10 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 event is sponsored by the Friends of Wilderness Road State Park.

The picturesque Karlan Mansion will provide a spectacular backdrop for the candy-filled egg hunt which features three age groups providing fair competition for prizes that include chocolate bunnies and Easter baskets loaded with candy. Age groups include: infant-3, ages 4-6 and ages 7-10.

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 chocolate bunny.

New 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.

Games and activities are scheduled throughout the event with a visit by the Easter Bunny concluding the day’s activities. Chocolate bunnies will be awarded to the winners of selected games and races.

The popular event will also include light refreshments and photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny.

The Friends of Wilderness Road State Park is providing the eggs and prizes for the celebration. The Friends and Wal-Mart donated the candy that is placed inside the eggs.

Pre-registration is required and participants are asked to bring their own basket. Admission to this year’s event is just $1 per vehicle, which will go toward the expenses incurred with the event. For more information, or to register, please call 276-445-3065 or email us.
