The Easter Bunny is soon hopping into Walterboro.
Ivanhoe Family Cinemas and the Colleton County Arts Council are holding their first Easter Egg Hunt Extravaganza on Saturday, April 3rd at 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Ivanhoe Family Cinemas in Walterboro. This a free public event. Though social distancing and masks will be required, fun and games are still being offered.
On the day of the event, groups of 15 children will be allowed inside the cinema in rotation. Each of these groups will be given five-minute increments to hunt for eggs. Then, children will be rotated so that 15 more can hunt for eggs inside the theater. Outside the building, fun games and activities are planned for kids while they wait their turn to hunt eggs.
Kids will enjoy egg races, sack races, bean bag toss and cans to knock down. A professional face painter will be there painting faces for free, and a jump castle will be nearby for a lot of hopping fun. Hand sanitizers will be available.
The Easter Bunny will be attending this show and will be taking pictures with kids.
“Special thanks to the following businesses, groups and people: Golden Daffodil, Fit4, Lowcountry Smocked Tots, Mandy Bis-Na, Michelle Robinson, and the Colleton County High School National Honor Society for their donations and volunteer work to help make this possible for our community,” said Faith Clementson of Ivanhoe Cinemas. “Like the Trunk or Treat, we would like to make this an annual event for our community.”
