Egg hunts and Easter bunny sightings across Beaufort
Spring is arriving in the Lowcountry and as Easter nears everybody wants to know where to find the Easter Bunny for photos and who’s hosting a good old fashioned Easter egg hunt for the kids.
We rounded up a few that are coming both north and south of the Broad River. Easter is a little earlier than usual this year, falling on Sunday, April 1st and most of the local events are approaching fast.
If you’re looking for a good photo opportunity, you can get the kids’ photos taken with the Easter bunny on Saturday the 24th from 9am to 2pm at Chick-fil-A on Boundary Street in Beaufort. Always a fun time at a kid-friendly spot. Visit the event on Facebook for more info.
In downtown Beaufort, the Easter bunny will be visiting The Chocolate Tree on March 17th & 18th and again on the 24th & 25. Saturday hourse are 11am to 5pm and Sunday hours are from 1 to 4pm. It’s a win-win when you can get photos with the Easter bunny AND some of those homemade chocolate treats.
