Easter egg hunt a success at Magnolia Plantation

Posted: Updated:
WEST ASHLEY, S.C. (WCIV) – The rain may have spoiled some of the biggest Easter egg hunts in the Lowcountry, but at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, the hunt went on. 

Eggbert Hopps, the mascot of the plantation, stuffed and hid thousands of plastic eggs with candy and prizes for the 2014 Easter egg hunt. 

Kids of all ages were able to hunt for prizes, including family memberships to Magnolia Plantation, boat rides, and the chance to host a birthday party at the gardens. 

“We really didn't want to cancel the egg hunt because what fun is an Easter egg hunt after Easter, so luckily at the last minute this morning, we saw a break in the weather and we decided we are going to go ahead and do this,” said Tom Johnson, the plantation’s executive director.

Johnson said they had to move to higher ground, but the event went off without any problems. The Easter egg hunt uually husually on the main grounds, but muddy conditions from Friday night's storms prevented that. 

Instead, Johnson said they moved the hunt to the rear of the carriage house underneath a 500-year-old oak tree. 

Hopps was also available for photographs with the kids after the hunt ended. This was the fourth annual Easter egg hunt.
