Candy-filled egg hunt highlights Easter at Karlan

Colorful candy-filled eggs on the Karlan Mansion lawn will lead children to Wilderness Road State Park’s annual Easter at Karlan celebration on April 20, beginning at 2 p.m. Children ages 13 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 to 3 years of age, ages 4-6, ages 7-9 and ages 10-13.

Each group will also contain specially marked eggs with the finders receiving a prize. Prizes will be awarded on the front porch of the mansion 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, refreshments and prizes for the celebration.

Participants are asked to bring their own basket.
