When the Easter Bunny visits the Texas Hill Country, he brings along several special events to Fredericksburg. If you are in town for the holiday weekend, here is a look at several ways to celebrate the occasion.

  • The fields at Wildseed Farms should be bursting with color this Easter Weekend. The nation’s largest working wildflower farm is located just a few miles from downtown Fredericksburg and will provide the perfect place to take photos of fields of Texas bluebonnets, poppies, and other seasonal wildflowers.
