We've endured some stormy weather over the past week, but we'll enjoy a nice break in the pattern over the Easter weekend and weather will be perfect for getting outdoors.  

If you're looking for some fun for you and your family while also enjoying some lovely spring blooms you should consider a visit to the Dixon Gallery & Gardens this weekend.  

Over the winter months the Dixon horticultural staff planted 150,000 tulip bulbs of various colors and types and now they're all in full bloom. This weekend is the perfect time to catch this amazing colorful sight in all it's glory, but you'd better hurry because these blooms won't last long.  

This Saturday is also special because on the first Saturday of each month the Dixon offers their Family Studio Program from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. The entire family can create unique works of art, open studio-style. Each month features a new project with a large assortment of supplies to produce artwork as a family and it's FREE with your paid admission.  

This weekend also features the Dixon's Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday. It's the perfect place to spend this Easter weekend and enjoy the wonderful spring weather and lovely spring blooms.  

The Dixon Gallery & Gardens are open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.  Admission is FREE for members, $7 for adults, $5 for seniors and students 18 and older with ID, $3 for children 7-17, and FREE for children under 6.

So, plan some time outdoors with the family this weekend and see what's blooming at the Dixon.
