Gunstock Ranch Easter Egg Hunt was started by Rita Smith and the tradition continues on through Greg and Kyndra Smith and their family. This free event has been a way for Gunstock Ranch to give back to the community and continues to grow each year because of the many helping hands.
Here are a few ways you can help:
- March 30th – 9 am – Gunstock Pool Pavilion – Join us to dye 3,500+ eggs and stuff 7,000+ eggs with candy. Children are welcome if they are accompanied by adults.
- March 31st – 7 am – Hiding eggs. It takes time and many hands to hide this many eggs over 10 acres. So come join in. Children are welcome to come and will be assigned to hide eggs in a pasture different than they will look in.
- Monetary donations – will go toward the expense of the eggs and candy. Gunstock Ranch does not make money from the egg hunt. It is put on purely for enjoyment and tradition. To make a donation email [email protected]
- Parking – Hundreds of people come every year and the more hands the easier it is for everyone.
