Dominion Energy Family Easter at Maymont
The Dominion Energy Family Easter at Maymont is free and features 100 acres of fun for kids of all ages. Activities include a gold mine of Easter-themed prizes, an egg-plore worthy of the name and a whole lot more. In addition, there are plenty of opportunities to win tickets to the many events and exhibits that take place at Maymont throughout the year. As for the event itself, the event is a no-brainer for families with young children, and even adults can’t help but have a good time.
While Dominion Energy hasn’t ruled out hosting another year round family fun fest, it has already nixed Broad Appetit in favor of a new competition. Nevertheless, the company has put forth the requisite effort to make this year’s event a success. Among other things, the company has stocked the event with a few of its own patented inventions, and a few enticingly branded ones. Aside from the usual suspects, the company is also helping local businesses get their jollies.
