Each Saturday will feature a scavenger hunt and fairy activities, along with these extra events:
March 24 – Paint the Towne: Create your own tulip-themed art.
March 31 – Wichita Children’s Theatre performances of “Thwacked” (10 a.m.) and “Peter Pan” (1 and 3 p.m.).
April 7 – Picture Day: Get your family’s or child’s picture taken among the tulips. Download from Botanica’s Flickr page after the event.
April 14 – Kansas Dance Academy ballet performance at 2 p.m.
The gardens will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the activities will be included in Botanica admission or membership.
The daffodils normally bloom through March, and the tulips from late March through late April.
