Easter at the Karlan Mansion


One of the park's most popular KIDS events features over 2,000 candy-filled eggs decorating the Karlan Mansion lawn for children ages 10-under. Children hop along with the Easter Bunny to hunt for the elusive candy-filled eggs that highlight a day of fun and games. Prize eggs are hidden in 4 age groups to allow each child a better opportunity to earn prizes ranging from small chocolate bunnies up to a large chocolate bunny. Just $1 per vehicle. Begins at 2 p.m. rain or shine. Oh yeah, don't forget to bring your own basket.

Children up to 10 years of age hop along with the Easter Bunny to hunt for elusive candy-filled eggs that highlight a day of fun and games while providing a colorful touch to the Karlan Mansion lawn. Hunts are sorted by age group to give everyone a fair chance to find hidden eggs and earn prizes. Snacks and refreshments will be furnished by Friends of Wilderness Road State Park. The Easter Bunny dances, plays and is available for photos. Children should bring their own baskets. The fun takes place rain or shine.


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 chocolate bunnies of all sizes. 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 the largest chocolate bunny.

The park has added extra prize eggs to each age group, giving children a better opportunity to win a chocolate bunny. Prizes will be awarded at the conclusion of the egg hunt.
