Easter Egg Hunt at Friendship Botanic Gardens

April 12, 2019

On Easter Sunday, April 21st, Friendship Botanic Gardens will host a FREE afternoon of egg- hunting adventures among 105 acres of nature trails and formal gardens. Kids ages 0 to 12 and their families are invited to walk the trails and explore the blooming gardens while searching for thousands of eggs hidden throughout the grounds. The hunt starts promptly at 11am CDT– rain or shine — and ends when all eggs have been found. The eggs go fast so be sure to arrive on time and bring your own basket for this “Egg-stravaganza” of Easter fun. 

The egg hunting arenas will be divided into two areas: one for kids ages 0 to 3 and another for ages 4 to 12. 

Families can take pictures with the Easter Bunny before or after the egg hunt. 

Kids can also check out the ArcelorMittal Children’s Garden, a newly installed arena for interactive nature-based play experiences created thanks to the support of the ArcelorMittal Corporation.

Friendship Botanic Gardens is located at 2055 East US Highway 12, Michigan City, IN 46360. For more information contact us at 219 878 9885 or
