Here on the Grand Strand, our community is celebrating spring with a series of events in North Myrtle Beach that extend all month long.
LuLu’s in Barefoot Landing, hosts an annual Easter EGGstravaganza on Easter Sunday, April 4, from morning until early afternoon. There will be an egg hunt, a visit from the Easter bunny, and crafts. Last year’s event was virtual; this year’s is planned for outside at the playground to keep everyone safe while having fun.
Visit Facebook@lulusnorthmyrtlebeach for full details and the latest information on weather and planning.
Also in the Barefoot Landing area, The House of Blues is known for their Sunday brunches; their Easter gospel celebration is particularly acclaimed.
