Clarkston Family Farm is excited to bring in spring with their first Family Fun Free Day of the year along with its annual Easter event on Saturday, April 8, 1-4 p.m.
“It’s just a ball,” said CFF Executive Director Chelsea O’Brien, about the second annual Easter event. “Last year was just a ton of fun. This year will be the same. It’s the first Family Fun Day. It’s welcome back spring, swinging the doors open and inviting the community to come and celebrate with us.
“We will have different workshops. We have a local beekeeper coming. We’ve got some folks who are going to teach how to do maple syrup evaporating. We’ve got some planting workshops – the magic of micro greens is one of those. Those are free, interactive and open to the community.”
O’Brien added there will be tons of crafts for kids, food trucks and music. There is also an Easter Egg Hunt and those interested should register online.
“You do not have to register to come to the event, but it would be nice to know you are coming,” O’Brien said.
Also available online are tickets for a discounted price of $20 for 25 tickets or can be bought at the event for $1 for one ticket. The tickets are used for hay rides, refreshments and crafts which are more involved like the Bee Motel with honey stick workshop.
O’Brien added everything else is free which includes visit with the Easter Bunny and Easter Bunny buddies, paper pot planters with seed packets, story time with puppets and visits with the farm animals including the mini-horses, Hen’s Haven with baby chicks, Piglet Pals and Bunnyville Interaction. The Sunflower Market is open during the event as well.
