Egg-splosion at Walters’ Pumpkin Patch
Bracing against the windy, forty degree weather with colorful baskets in hand, families arrived at Walters’ Pumpkin Patch for breakfast with the Easter Bunny.
Walters’ annual Egg-splosion was held on Saturday, April 16, 2022 at the farm located 10 minutes north of El Dorado on Highway 77.
After breakfast with the Easter Bunny, individual egg hunts were held divided by age groups. Kim came all the way from Maize to join her granddaughter, Talia for the egg-splosion. They were in the 0-3 egg hunt age group.
“We had a blast,” said Kim with Talia echoing her sentiment.
“The drive was worth it to see the bunny,” she said.
Following the egg hunts, families gathered along the fence line of the large open field to watch the airplane egg drop and scramble to collect the eggs filled with candy and toys.
While Walters’ Pumpkin Patch is known for their fall festival which provides visitors with the opportunity to pick their own pumpkin, navigate a corn maze, and enjoy many activities, the farm transitions with the seasons to offer unique experiences for their guests. Now, they are continuing the fun and changing perceptions with unique offerings throughout the year.
“Memories are the one thing we all have in common,” said Angie Day, the Events and Marketing Coordinator for Walters’ Pumpkin Patch.
“We harvest memories,” she said. “We are blessed to have multiple generations of families passing on the tradition of visiting Walters’ Farm numerous times throughout each year.”
“Each event hosted at Walters’ Pumpkin Patch allows memories to be shared, remembered, harvested, and created,” said Day.
“Walters’ Farm looks forward to creating additional events while honoring the traditions that have blessed many generations,” she said.
