Easter Eggstravaganza 2017 at Capon Springs & Farms, April 13 – 16

April 13 – April 16, 2017

For only the third time in our 85 year history, we will open our doors early to host an Easter Weekend EGGstravaganza over the April 13-16, 2017 weekend. Last time, over 200 guests joined us for several days of family-filled festivities and, quite frankly, we couldn’t think of a better way to begin our 2017 season! We so enjoy seeing all the familiar faces–as well as welcome new ones too!

Our guest of honor, the Easter Bunny, will make appearances all weekend. Friday night, guests will have a chance to win fabulous Capon prizes during an Easter Egg Bingo party. Who will take home the grand prize of a free night stay for two this time? Saturday afternoon will feature Easter egg hunts and lawn games for all ages. Everyone will be singing and dancing to the silly “Happy Easter (hop, hop)” song- which is still etched into the brains of past participants! We will end Saturday evening with a long-standing Capon tradition—a campfire sing-a-long and hot dog roast.

If the temperatures are comfortable enough, we will hold the Sunday Sunrise Service up on the Hill, offering a joyous celebration of new life. April usually means crisp mornings and evenings so look forward to cozy fires in the Main House fireplaces. Maintenance supervisor Bub Brill will keep them stocked with fresh split logs.

As far as fun contests, if you are good at guessing, you could win the new Capon water bottle if you can determine how many jelly beans are in it! We will all be anticipating the usual delicious Capon feasts with a few extra festive surprises!
