The Lamb Center in Fairfax City is hosting its first-ever Spring Festival & Fundraiser. It’s slated for April 10, from 1-3 p.m., at Van Dyck Park, 3720 Old Lee Hwy. in Fairfax.
The family-friendly event is open to the public and will celebrate the arrival of spring with a live baby lamb petting area, Easter-egg decorating, face and mural painting, and a 1:30 p.m. Easter egg hunt.
The festival will also include a 50/50 raffle in which participants will vie for a cash prize and an “egg-stravagant” Easter basket. All proceeds will go directly to supporting the programs that provide hope and resources for Lamb Center guests. These resources include connecting them to housing, health care, transportation and even jobs.
Festivities will take place under the large, picnic pavilion and in the adjacent field. The event is free, but attendees are asked to register on The Lamb Center’s website: https://www.thelambcenter.org/.
