With spring in full bloom throughout the Hudson Valley, guests at the Fairy House Hunt at Locust Grove will get a full glimpse of the beautiful trees and flowers across the property. Locust Grove writes:

Each Fairy House celebrates and educates about a different heirloom flower, historic tree, and the pollinators that make them grow! You'll find some fabulous new houses and some of your perennial favorites!

It's a fun family event for the whole family, and Locust Grove encourages guests to strap on their fairy wings and dress up for the occasion.
