Easter Egg Hunt and Breakfast with the Easter Bunny

Saturday, March 19, 2016

Join us for some “eggstra” special Easter fun! On March 19, Bellingrath will host its annual Easter Egg Hunt on the Great Lawn. Thousands of Easter eggs will decorate the luxurious lawn for children to scurry and collect. There will be special hunts for different age groups as well as prizes, candy and activities, which makes this a perfect event for your entire family.

The Easter Egg Hunts will begin at 9 AM on the Great Lawn. Children are invited to participate in one of three Egg Hunts depending on their age:

  • Age 3 and under: A continuous Easter Egg Hunt from 9 – 10:30 AM.
  • Ages 4 – 6: Easter Egg Hunt from 10 – 10:15 AM.
  • Ages 7 – 11: Easter Egg Hunt from 10:15 – 10:30 AM.

Please plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your child’s Easter Egg Hunt to allow plenty of time to walk from the Entrance Building to the Great Lawn. We ask that children bring their own basket or bag to collect eggs and treats.

Education students from the University of South Alabama will provide games and craft projects on Live Oak Plaza throughout the morning from 9 AM until noon. There will be a snack area on Live Oak Plaza with special Easter treats. A professional photographer will be available to take children’s portraits with the Easter Bunny in the Gift Shop Greenhouse.

The Easter Egg Hunt is open to the public. Admission is free for members. Regular Gardens admission of $13.00 for adults and $7.50 for children ages 5-12 will be charged. Children ages 4 and under are always admitted free.

Families are also invited to join us for the 3rd Annual Breakfast with the Easter Bunny in the Magnolia Café from 8 – 9 AM. Make your reservations to join us for pancakes, sausages, fruit and beverages. Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny will be visiting guests at their tables throughout the breakfast. Breakfast will be $10.00 for adults, $8.00 for children ages 5-12 and $5.00 for children 4 and under. Be sure to make your reservations early as seating is limited.
