“Life’s A Picnic”

Celebrate family time all weekend long in the garden. Don your best outfits and hats, and come out to the garden for photos, music, face painting by A Fresh Perspective, Country Critters Petting Zoo, games and more. On Good Friday, Eddie Coker returns for his annual concert on the Martin Rutchik Concert Stage and Lawn at 11am and 2pm, sponsored by DallasChild. On Saturday, we attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records for the Largest Bunny Hop in Jonsson Color Garden with the Easter Bunny leading the way at 11am, rain or shine. Both Saturday and Sunday Chris Ivey Photography will be back to provide family photos available to purchase with live bunnies.
