Hop on down to the Gardens and join us for some “eggstra” special Easter fun! On April 9, 2022, Bellingrath will host the annual Easter Egg Hunt on the Great Lawn. Thousands of Easter eggs will be scattered across the lawn for children to gather and then exchange for treats! There will be special hunts for different age groups, as well as prizes, candy and “eggtivities,” which makes this a perfect family outing. The Great Lawn offers plenty of room for safe, social distanced fun in a noncompetitive setting.
Children are invited to participate in one of three Egg Hunts depending on their age:
Ages 3 & Under
A continuous Easter Egg Hunt from 9 to 10:30 a.m.*
Ages 4 to 6
Easter Egg Hunt from 10-10:15 a.m.
Ages 7 & Up
Easter Egg Hunt from 10:15-10:30 a.m.
*Children with special needs will also have a designated area where they can participate during the same time frame as children ages 3 & under.
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.
The Azalea Trail Maids will be on hand to greet guests throughout the Gardens. Games and craft projects to stimulate children’s creativity will follow on Live Oak Plaza throughout the morning from 9 a.m. until noon. The Magnolia Cafe will also serve a special breakfast with the Easter bunny for families from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., so come hungry!
