What we like about Peteys Easter Eggstravaganza
There are a number of things we really like about Peteys Easter Eggstravaganza. Not least of which, it’s affordable and good old-fashioned fun.
The event takes place at a farm and there are real farm animals that kids can see and even touch. There is a train that kids and their families can ride on around the property, and there are indoor activities too (so it’s also good on rainy days).
Peteys Easter Eggstravaganza is a perfect place for young children and their families to have Easter-themed fun.
Tips and Advice
Below are some suggestions and extra information to help you make the most out of your experience at Peteys Easter Eggstravaganza.
TIP #1: Expect to stay for up to a couple of hours (plus or minus). Between the egg hunting, petting zoo, train ride and indoor activities, there is a fair bit to keep little folk busy!
TIP #2: If travelling from far away, combine your trip to Peteys Easter Eggstravaganza with a visit to other attractions in the area. The Chilliwack Tulip Festival is only a 15-minute drive away (at 41310 Yale Road) and open in 2019 starting on April 10th. Harrison Hot Springs is also beautiful this time of year and just 25 km or so north of Fantasy Farms.
TIP #3: If going to the Chilliwack Tulip Festival, be sure to try some of the barbecue ribs from Guerilla Q if it’s there. Each day at the flower festival there are between 1 and 5 food vendors, including Guerilla Q (which is run by the family behind Fantasy Farms). If you like pork ribs, you’ll love what Guerilla Q has to offer!
TIP #4: Check out some of the other events at Fantasy Farms at other times of the year too. The Easter event is definitely for younger children, as is Petey’s Pumpkin Patch in October and Petey’s Country Christmas in December. The Chilliwack Garlic Festival though features live music and is for people of all ages, and Reaper’s at Halloween is one of the Lower Mainland’s scariest and most popular haunted houses.
