3 fun things: April 7-9


Easter Eggstravaganza

The Rock Ranch, a working cattle farm about 8 miles southeast of Barnesville, hosts an Easter Eggstravaganza that’s eggs-actly what you’d imagine: eggs everywhere. The staff of the ranch hides 45,000 prize-filled plastic eggs across the property’s 1,500 acres, and they have egg hunts for different age groups throughout the afternoon. Come a little early to take pictures with the Easter Bunny, or for $8, enjoy 35 activities at the ranch, including a carousel, pony rides and a giant jumping pillow. More adventurous options include a zipline and a 50-foot rock climbing wall. Food and drinks, as well items from the ranch’s local market, will be available.

11 a.m. – 4 p.m. April 8. Free admission. The Rock Ranch, 5020 Barnesville Hwy., The Rock. 706-647-6374,
