Easter in Highlands County


       Easter is on Sunday, April 21 this year. Easter is a celebration of Jesus Christ and his resurrection some 2,000 years ago.

It is a great place to take the kids and have a family fun day! The cost to get into the festival is $2 and if you would like your child to partake in the actual Easter Egg Hunt, it is $6 and all children must be pre-registered.
