The annual Callahan Egg-Stravaganza will be held Saturday March 26, 2016 at the historic Waters Farm from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.at the Bunny’s Barn in Sutton.
Due to the …historic snowfall last year, former State Rep. Jen Callahan and her husband, Mike, had to cancel their annual Egg-Stravaganza for the first time in almost 20 years. However, they announced then to expect its return this year. Well, it’s back!
The Egg-Stravaganza will be held Saturday March 26, at the historic Waters Farm from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Bunny’s Barn. Children can begin greeting the Easter Bunny at 11 a.m. with egg hunts starting promptly at noon in the fields.
The Iron Shoe Farms Petting Zoo returns, featuring “Wille” the Giant Flemish Rabbit and “Sherman” the Wedding Goose, along with many friendly goats and sheep. The Easter Bunny will preside over all events including Cottontail Photo Portraits, Egg Candy Hunts and a Spring-Fling Picnic
Over 9,500 candy-filled eggs will be hidden in the fields and walls at Waters Farm. There is a separate hunt for children under the age of 5. Parents can bring cameras for a personal Bunny photo. They are also asked to bring egg collection baskets or bags! The Easter Bunny will award special prizes for finding Wooden Treasure Eggs and the Bunny’s Tail!
Each year, scores of children gleefully participate with their families in this timeless tradition in which the Callahan’s have hosted with area youth volunteer and student community groups, including Sutton Scouts and students from the Blackstone Valley Youth Leadership Academy. Members of the Sutton Lions Club, along with local businesses, will also team up with the Callahan effort to bring joy to hundreds of children and their families.
Any student seeking to do community service may volunteer during this fun event. Call Jen at 508- 865-4688 for more information. This tradition is free and open to the children of Sutton. The event will be held rain, shine or even snow.
