The Wyeth Tootle Mansion had hundreds of people hopping over to Museum Hill for a little holiday fun at the Easter Extravaganza Saturday morning.
Families had the chance to do arts and crafts, visit the Easter Bunny, hunt for eggs and visit animals from the Farm to Fork petting zoo.
Donna Clayton and Gwyneth Stuckenschneider both live in the historic district and helped coordinate the holiday activities. Clayton said that while this was only the second year for the event, the community support was overwhelming.
“We did this last year for the first time. We didn’t have a petting zoo last year, we just did eggs, bunny and crafts and we had a huge turnout. So obviously this was a big need for our community here on museum hill. This year we decided to ramp it up a little bit and add a petting zoo, and just do the same thing again and have some fun,” Clayton said.
The extravaganza was planned to help showcase the historic homes and buildings along Museum Hill.
“It’s just great that the Wyeth Tootle allows us to do this, because it brings people up here to our neighborhood and we really want to promote this neighborhood,” Stuckenschneider said.
The Wyeth Tootle Mansion will reopen for the regular season beginning Friday, April 6.
