Rascally Rabbit
Annual Adult Easter Egg Hunt
Our very own rascally rabbit increased the size of our hunting area and relocated the hunt to January Wabash Park.

This “egg-cellent” event is open to adults 21 and older. So grab your basket and flashlight for an evening down memory lane. Bring your own refreshments. Pre-registration is required for this event!
