“We’re very excited to be able to bring this to our community. This event is the first community wide Easter Egg Hunt of its kind in Beaufort. We hae an awesome town and can’t wait to have them celebrate on our campus,” she added.

At the festival, kids will enjoy unlimited time having fun in bounce houses for a small fee, a live DJ, photos with the Easter Bunny, face painting and vendor booths; with hot dogs & goodies available from school clubs and also from Cookies by Charlotte, Kona Ice and Crave Cupcake Boutique.

“It’s always great to have families on our campus to celebrate as a community,” said Dan Durbin, Head of school at Beaufort Academy. “We look forward to the joyful sounds of happy, smiling children.”
