LENS ON LOCAL: WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS WEEK IN THE LOWCOUNTRY

CHARLESTON, SC (ADAM BRADLEY, WTAT-TV) — With a bit of humidity in the air and the allergens migrating back to town, we know that spring has officially sprung here in Charleston. This weekend many of us will be celebrating the Easter holiday as I am in the pinkest shirt I have ever worn.

If you’re on the hunt for eggs you may want to consider Middleton Place as your preferred hunting grounds. The Easter-eggstravaganza is a BYOB event – meaning “bring your own basket – starting at 10:30am on Saturday, where hard boiled eggs can be plucked from their hiding places and dyed on site, plus some lucky hunters will discover the much-sought-after “prize eggs” which can be redeemed at the prize table.

For a fancy affair, also on Saturday, grab your most extravagant hat and join the Hat Ladies for their 16th Annual Easter Promenade! Starting at Washington Park next to city hall on Broad Street, true Charleston ladies and gentlemen will promenade through the historic city for a one-of-a-kind event and photo–op starting at 11am.

Now Earth Day is not until next weekend but since technically every day is earth day, I think it’s okay to celebrate a bit early! Charleston county’s 18th Annual Earth Day Festival combines a fun atmosphere with education with hands-on experiences that bring a deeper understanding of environmental issues to all ages. The event is free and starts at 11am Saturday at Riverfront Park in North Charleston.

That will wrap up the Easter edition of your Lens on Local. We’ll see you there with your shades on!
