Egg Hunt FAQs
Frequently Asked Questions for Carter Mountain Orchard’s annual Easter Eggstravaganza event
If a hunt hasn’t already sold out, you may also purchase tickets on-site on the day of, up to 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the hunt.
Unfortunately, there are no refunds, unless Carter Mountain cancels the event due to extreme conditions. If you purchase your tickets in advance but find you cannot come, please transfer them to a friend!
A bag for gathering eggs will be provided! To be fair to all participants, we will use the same size bag during the hunt. You can transfer your eggs into your own Easter basket after the hunt!
All hunts will start on time. Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the hunt in order to purchase or pick up tickets, get your bag and instructions, and be in place before the hunt begins.
The Easter Egg hunts are fast and furious! Even with all the eggs that are hidden, the hunts are over in just moments. Please arrive early so your child can enjoy the event!
The Easter Egg hunt is for the children. Parents may view and take photos from outside the designated area and are requested not to enter the hunt. (Please note, in our Chickadees hunt, parents may walk with their child – and please let the children gather the eggs!)
As a reminder, we are an orchard, on top of a mountain. We like to take advantage of our unique location! The hunts are set up in different areas around the farm that may include being in and around the trees. The ground can be uneven and hilly, and possibly wet, depending on weather. Please keep this in mind when dressing your children for the event.
We find it most fair to keep children in the proper age groups. Thank you for your cooperation!
Our eggs are stuffed with hard candy and prizes. Parents should monitor their children when they are opening eggs. (For the Chickadee hunt, we use empty eggs and give each participant a bag of candy at the end.)
We do recycle and re-use the plastic eggs for future years, so if you don’t want to keep the eggs, please leave them with us in the designated areas!
Our Easter Bunny works hard–each year we hide thousands of eggs!
