Check Out The Easter Egg Hunt And Spring Market At Oak Mountain
It’s almost time for what many locals consider the highlight of the spring season: Oak Mountain State Park’s Easter Egg Hunt and Spring Market makes its triumphant return on Saturday, April 6. Mark your calendars for this fun-filled, family-friendly event and prepare to make it a yearly tradition that everyone will look forward to.
An Easter-iffic Event
This year marks the 12th annual Easter Egg Hunt and Spring Market, and it promises to be the best one yet. The activities are on from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., so you can take all the time you like. Bring your basket for the headlining hunts (designed for various age groups – this year, there’s even one for the dogs) to uncover the more than 25,000 filled eggs. Make sure to snap a photo with the Easter Bunny – he’ll be hopping around enjoying the festivities. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, though. Here’s a sampling of other highlights of the day:
Hay rides – Complimentary hay rides run throughout the day.
Pony rides – Rusted Roof Barn will be offering pony rides for kids ages 3 to 12 for $5 per ride (cash only).
Yard games – Kids of all ages can enjoy corn hole and giant-scale checkers and tic tac toe set up on the lawn.
Rock wall – Scale the Mountain High Outfitters rock wall and watch demos of some of their latest and greatest outdoor recreation activities.
Animal encounters – The Alabama Wildlife Center will be on hand for educational meet and greets with some live raptors.
Food vendors – Grab some tasty refreshments from food purveyors including Nothing Bundt Cakes, Urban Pops, Two Fat Men Catering, Tamale Queen, Naughty But Nice Kettle Corn Co., Heavenly Donut Co., Monzy’s Deli, and more!
A Memorable Market
Not to be outdone by all the aforementioned activities, the Spring Market itself is a huge draw every year. Local craftsmen, artists, bakers, artisans, and brand reps will be on hand with Easter and spring-themed wares, home decor, clothing, basket fillers, and more. Browse and shop to your heart’s content as vendors will be set up from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
