What:Rutledge Wilson Farm- Easter at the Farm
When: March 24th
Where: 3825 W Farm Road 146, Springfield, MO
According to the website, this event includes inflatables, an Easter egg hunt, the Easter Bunny, and arts and crafts. This event is free but some activities do have a small fee. I also just saw on their Facebook Page that new baby goats were just born, so this would be a fun time to visit the farm!
