An Old-fashioned Easter
Monday, March 25, 2013
Here comes Peter Cotton Tail, hopping all the way to the Ryon Home and Davis Mansion at the George Ranch thisSaturday, March 30.
This family-oriented day will be full of activities. Grab a spoon and get ready to race across the grass with your egg in the traditional 1830s Easter egg roll, just like the one held every year at the White House Lawn since the early 1800s.
Then, venture to the Ryon Prairie Home and bring out your inner artist while decorating eggs with natural dyes of the old-days, made from a combination of food products. Some of the items used to dye the eggs include: red cabbage, coffee, beet juice, onion skin and turmeric.
After that, see how many Easter eggs you can find in the Victorian Egg Hunt at the Davis Mansion. Egg hunts will be held at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m.
We will be serving a special Easter Brunch of smoked ham with pan gravy, potato casserole green beans with bacon and onion, a cheesy cauliflower bake, mixes veggies, homemade rolls and your choice of apple or peach cobbler. Tickets for the annual Easter Brunch in the picturesque George Yard are $13.50 for adults (13 and older), $10 for children ages 5-12, and $4 for children 4 years old and younger. Please call (281) 343-0218 to make your reservations for the historic meal.
