CHILDREN'S EASTER EGG HUNT: Easter Sunday, April 16

Grab your baskets! Austin's biggest historic Easter Egg Hunt will take place on Sunday, April 16, in our Sprinkle Corner entry village.

In addition to three egg hunts staggered by age from 1-3, there will be an egg toss, egg races and historical activities and crafts — and fun all afternoon. Bunnies (real and stuffed toys) will be available for petting and the (the latter) for purchase in our quaint General Store.

Best part: Regular admission will be charged, probably the best deal in Austin for an afternoon of traditional Easter family fun in Austin.

Egg hunts will start at 1 p.m. for ages 1-3 years; 2 p.m. for ages 4-7, and 3 p.m. to ages 8 and older. An Adult Easter Egg Hunt is being held the night before. Look for details on our Home page.
