This free event is primarily for children ages 12 and under. Activities vary every year, but we always get a visit from the Easter Bunny and do an Easter Egg Hunt. There are thousands of eggs hidden all over the property and to ensure all children walk away with candy, they are separated by age groups.
Memorial Day Parade
Each Memorial Day, we participate in the Elyria Memorial Day Parade in downtown Elyria passing out candy and material to the public.
We have a great view of the Elyria Fireworks. Every year we open up our parking lot to the public and pass out free refreshments and glow sticks and watch fireworks.
