Make sure you eat a healthy breakfast this morning because we’ve got a full day today! The First Presbyterian Church of Hilton Head is hosting their very own Easter Egg Hunt on church property, beginning at 10:00am. Grab your baskets, and let’s get hoppin’!
After you’ve filled your basket with eggs from the church, join everyone at Shelter Cove Community Park for an Easter celebration unlike any other! The official egg hunt will begin at 11:00 and will be followed by live music, games, and various carnival activities for the entire family!
Parents, now it’s time to take a break; sit down for a nice lunch and relax with the family for a while before the fun begins again…this time just off-island, in Bluffton.
Head on out to Bluffton’s Storybook Shoppe to mean another one of the Lowcountry’s favorite bunnies, who will be visiting between 2:00pm – 2:45pm. Immediately following, take the family to one last Easter Egg hunt before the day is over, and let them fill their baskets once again! Hop on over to Bluffton High School where they will be hosting their annual community egg hunt from 3:00pm-6:00pm, and enjoy visiting with local families and friends.
