Saturday’s Easter Eggstravaganza; Sunday’s Easter Sunrise Service and Brunch offer something for everyone
Easter traditions will continue at Callaway Gardens® this year during the weekend of April 11 and 12, 2009.
All ages are invited to participate in the Easter Eggstravaganza Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 11, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. EDT around Robin Lake Beach. Finding thousands of candy eggs, along with some very special prize eggs, will be the goal of guests of every age. The Easter Bunny will visit from noon to 5:00 p.m. for boys and girls to have their Easter photo taken. Bring your own basket or buy one once you arrive. Egg hunts are free with admission to Callaway Gardens.
The annual Easter Sunrise Service will be April 12, at 7:00 a.m. at the Robin Lake Ski Pavilion. This year’s service will be led by Mark Outlaw, senior minister of the First United Methodist Church of Pine Mountain, and will feature an inspirational choir. The natural beauty of Callaway Gardens during the early morning hours serves as a fitting backdrop to this memorable event. Admission is free prior to 8:00 a.m. Guests should enter through the beach gate on U. S. Hwy. 27.
