April 2 - 11, 2021: EGG HUNTS GALORE
We will host small, frequent egg hunts for children in different age groups (ages 1 to 3 and 4 to 6) throughout the day all day (10 AM, 10:30, 11 AM, 11:30, 12 noon, 12:30, 1 PM, 1:30, 2 PM, 2:30, 3 PM, 3:30, 4 PM, and 4:30 PM) from Friday April 2 through Sunday April 11. This also includes Easter Monday, April 5th. Our $8 per person admission fee for the farm applies, but there is no extra charge for the egg hunt. The petting farm, rides and play areas are open for you to enjoy. When you are ready to participate in the egg hunt, come to the Egg Hunt area and your child will line up with other children and pick up eggs. The eggs will then be turned in for a goodie bag. The first egg hunt each time will be for the 1-3 year olds. Once they are finished and while they are turning in their eggs for the goodie bags, the 4-6 year olds start their egg hunt. It all happens very quickly. We make sure each child gets at least a few eggs and since they turn them in for goodie bags, it doesn't matter how many they get. It's our goal that they have fun and stay safe, so we will do everything we can to make sure the children have the chance to find eggs in a socially-distanced way.
April 24-25, 2021: FAIRY FOREST WEEKEND

From the assassinations of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and James Garfield and Francis Scott Key’s son, to crimes of passion and rage at the US Capitol, Secret Washington, DC uncovers many of the dark and untold truths of how our nation emerged. At the same time, it shines a bright light on the capital’s numerous signs of creativity and innovation through the exploration of quirky art installations like Foamhenge and Barbie Pond on Avenue Q, to oddly shaped and decorated homes like the Mushroom House and the Vanadu Art House.
Local author and educator JoAnn Hill will introduce you to the other side of Washington, DC: a treasure trove of mystique, peculiarities, and hidden history just waiting to be explored.
