Dunsmuir Hellman Historic Estate hosts its annual "The Great Egg Hunt." Over 2,000 children and parents attend this fun filled day. The Estate is always filled with families and friends from ages 2 to 80. The multi-generational groups enjoy participating and watching as the children hunt for eggs and candy; and then return to other Estate fun activities. Families eat lots of hot dogs while being entertained by the Dancing Bunnies, and the children Prescott Clowns juggling while stilt- walking. There probably will be a petting zoo, an Adopt a Pet Area, crafts, egg-dying, face painting, lots of crafts and a very special visit from the Easter Bunny. Families are also able to tour the Historic 117-year Mansion.

"It is a joy and it is always a pleasure to make the Dunsmuir Hellman Historic Estate accessible for the enjoyment of children and families. It is so much fun seeing everyone come out and play the OPR way!" says Deborah Cooper, the Estate Manager.
