Eggbert Hopps, Magnolia Plantation and Garden’s mascot, has stuffed thousands of plastic eggs with candy and prizes for the 2014 Easter Egg Hunt on April 19.
Children will be divided into three age groups for the 30-minute hunts on the lawn next to the Peacock Café.
The first group – children 2 and under – will start at 10:30 a.m. The hunt for children 3 – 5 years old will start at 11 a.m. Children 6 – 7 years old will hunt for eggs beginning at noon.
Children 8 – 10 years old will get their chance to find a prize at 1 p.m. Space is limited. Please arrive 30 minutes before a hunt time.
Prizes include a nature train ride for up to five people, a nature boat ride for up to five people, an annual family membership, chocolate bunnies, and a birthday party for up to 30 children.
Prizes can be claimed at the Magnolia business office.
Mr. Hopps will attend the Easter Egg Hunt, and he will be available to pose for pictures with children from 10 a.m. — 1:30 p.m. Photographer Christine Smith will have a variety of packages available for purchase. Magnolia has paid the sitting fee.
The Easter Egg Hunt is free with garden admission and for families with annual memberships.
