The FWIC owned and operated museum Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead National Historic Site hosted over 1600 kids and family members from our community on Good Friday! We all had a blast! Happy Easter to all families from FWIC.

The Balloon man was VERY popular. He and his partner were busy the entire time, even after closing time!
This young gal was crowned “Addie” for the day.
Farmer Dave also had chicks and these baby ducks for the petting zoo.
Aaah, the Easter Bunny!
Fun and Games
Another very popular activity was the Optimist build your own cookie booth.

The raffle and silent auction table. We are VERY grateful for the generous support of friends local merchants who provided items for this event.

Lots more fun to be had.
Pretty posies at one of our vendors.

All is ready!
The sun poked through the foggy skies for this heat of the Easter Egg Hunt. Under the watchful gaze of the Homestead, again.
