It’s time to grab those Easter egg baskets for the annual Jelly Bean Fling in Dade City.
The event, now in its third year, will be on April 6 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Kids will be provided baskets for an all-day egg hunt. Each plastic egg will contain sweet treats inside.
Other activities offered through the day include a barrel train ride with Conductor Joe at the helm, and a chance to explore the interior of various vehicles with Touch-a-Truck.
A bounce house with a slide will be available, as well as pony rides.
Other animals will be there, too, as the Blake Veterinary Hospital will be offering a petting zoo.
There will be carnival attractions inside the Mabel Jordan Barn, which kids can enjoy with five free tickets they receive at admission.
Face painting, rock painting, hat decorating and making tulip crafts will be the featured activities there.
Everyone’s favorite bunny, Jasper, will make an appearance – posing for free snapshots with guests from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Food trucks will be on site, for those who want to grab a bite to eat, and there will be vendors offering wreaths, clothing, soaps, honey, jewelry and other items.
The event also features live music from Mr. Tommy, who will encourage guests to sing along at his shows, scheduled for 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The function will be at the Pioneer Florida Museum and Village, 15602 Pioneer Museum Road in Dade City.
