Your family can hop all over town this weekend to celebrate Easter. From Santee to San Marcos, cities across our county are planning “Egg-cellent” events.
I’m most excited about Santee Lake’s Spring Eggstravaganza because I’ll be there representing Close5. If you have time between the continuous egg hunts (for kids 8 & under), face painting, pony rides, carnival rides, games, crafts and petting zoo, come and visit the Close5 booth for a free flip book featuring your family! (great alliteration, right?)
Santee Lake’s Eggstravaganza will take place at Lake 5 on Saturday, April 4 from 9 am until 3 pm. Activity and ride tickets are $1 each, and there is a $5 fee to enter the lake area. But I’m giving away two VIP packages that include Easter hunt wristbands and 25 activity tickets, so enter to win by commenting here with your favorite Easter tradition. 🙂
