Easter Eggstravaganza - a Springtide Tradition in The Gardens. There will be over 2,000 colorful eggs on-hand for The Elizabethan Gardens annual Eggstravaganza on April 7. What could be more picture-perfect than spring blooms, green grass and an Easter Egg Treasure Scavenger Hunt throughout The Gardens for this popular event? Hop over to The Gardens and join in the fun. But hold on to your Easter bonnets, there are more than just eggs at this classic event! This Outer Banks tradition includes: games, live bunnies provided by Pet Gallery of Nags Head, crafts, and a delicious homemade bake sale supplied by Roanoke Island Garden Club and Dunes of Dare Gardens Club members - as well as egg rolls, an Easter bonnet/hat contest, story time, educational games, and plenty of kid-friendly fun.
