When: Sat., March 26, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. 2016
The Camellias are blooming, the sun is out, the new bee hives are humming excitedly, and children clad in pastel seersucker suits and frilly white frocks dash between bushes and trees swinging woven baskets wildly. It’s Middleton Place’s ninth annual Easter celebration and the Easter egg hunt is a hands-down favorite. Children can run among the historic gardens from 10 a.m. until noon collecting as many eggs as they can fit in the basket they bring, and afterwards they can bring them to the Stableyards to be dyed. Other activities include an egg roll (not to be confused with the Chinese food), egg toss, a few colonial classic children’s games, a magic show, story-telling, and an appearance by the Easter Bunny himself. Since the fee for the event is general admission to the plantation, take advantage of your time there and spend the rest of the day touring the grounds, walking along the river, or taking a tour of the main house.
Price: Free with cost of admission
