Come enjoy the beauty of the Garden at QBG’s first Spring Egg Hunt! Bring your own basket to collect toy eggs (filled with a fun little trinket) hidden in the crabapple orchard in the Arboretum. The fun continues with seed planting activities for children, old-fashioned fun games, and our friends from Silly Cheeks Face Painting. Of course, we'll have a special visit from Flora the Flower, QBG’s mascot so don’t forget to bring your camera! (NOTE: The Parking Garden will be open for this event; $5 per vehicle.)
