As always, it is free and open to the public, so be sure to mark it on your calendar and check it out! There will be photos with the Easter Bunny, music, face painters and more. All this, plus the natural beauty of the cactus garden, the self-guided factory tour (including the history of the facility and a free chocolate sample) and the Solar Garden will make for a fun-filled day.
