What would Easter Weekend be in Charleston without the city’s annual Easter Eggstravaganza at Hampton Park? Join families of all ages on Saturday from 11am until 1pm for the biggest egg hunt in downtown Charleston, a petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, crafts, cookie decorating, games, pictures with the Easter Bunny, and more. This is a free event open to the public, but pre-registration is appreciated.
Before the big egg hunt, head out to Wild Dunes Sweetgrass Pavilion for Breakfast with the Easter Bunny. Families will delight in the famous Southern buffet and pancake buffet, and adults 21 and older may choose to enjoy unlimited mimosas and Bloody Marys for an additional charge. Reservations are required.
