GILCHRIST FARM SPRING FLING & EGG HUNT

April 20, 2019 9AM-5PM

Join us for an EGGsellent adventure!  

Join us for a celebration of Spring! Enjoy baby animals-goats, chicks, piglets and more! Listen to live music, eat great food, shop fantastic local vendors selling handcrafted & unique items, create spring farm crafts. Take a picture with the EASTER BUNNY or one of our friendly REAL BUNNIES! We’ll have pony rides, horseback rides, wagon rides to enjoy the spring color and green grass surrounding the farm, our new farm train, water balloon launch, archery, roping, BUTTERFLY RELEASE AT NOON, free PIG RACES at 2PM and 4PM and don’t miss out, join one of our fabulous EGG HUNTS!

Egg Hunts at 9AM, 11AM and 1PM & 3PM 

Each hunt is divided into FOUR age/ability groups:

  • EASY - Ages 3 and under. Eggs for all! Hidden in plain sight. An adult must accompany children for entire hunt.

  • MEDIUM -Ages 4-6 Partially hidden eggs, some obvious some less obvious. An adult must accompany children for entire hunt. Meant to encourage some looking but reward all hunters.

  • MEDIUM/DIFFICULT - Ages 7-9 Mostly hidden eggs with some giveaways. An adult must accompany children for entire hunt. Meant to challenge older children while still rewarding all hunters.

  • CHALLENGE COURSE for kids over 10 or any kid who wants an extra challenge! More of an obstacle course for the kids who have basically outgrown the simple hunt but still want a good challenge! Obstacles with actually hidden eggs. Adults accompany children to the hunt and then watch it unfold (no helping)! Eggs for all, but it won’t be easy!

    Let us know if your child has special needs. We will provide assistance to make it a great experience for everyone!

Each hunt starts out with field games including feed sack races, tug o’ war, egg & spoon races, bunny hop and more!

Egg hunt is free with purchase of Full Day Wristband or $3 if purchased individually.
