The hoppiest celebration at Verde Canyon Railroad is the Easter Bunny Express. This once-a-year opportunity to hob-knob with the wascally wabbit begins on the depot patio prior to the train's 1:00pm departure. You can take home proof that the Easter Bunny really does exist. The honorable hare appears around noon, doling out handfuls of treats and armloads of hugs before bidding farewell to everyone on the train as it departs. The Easter fun keeps going onboard with a winner-take-all jellybean counting contest. Adults can enjoy a spring-fresh Bloody Mary bursting with so many vegetables a rabbit would love it.
