The new season kicks off with the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Children can collect eggs to claim a prize, decorate an egg to hang on the Easter tree and then continue the search for the elusive golden and silver eggs to win a special prize.

There will also be a traditional turkey feast. Sittings are at noon and 2 p.m.
