in Uncategorized by

Easter comes a week early for a number of Florida children as Gov. Rick Scott and First Lady Ann Scott open their home Saturday to host the state’s annual Easter egg hunt at the Governor’s Mansion.

Joining the Governor and Mrs. Scott will be a group of children in foster care, in addition to kids with disabilities and those whose parents are serving in the Florida National Guard.

Everyone will get the opportunity to meet and get a photo with the Governor and the Easter Bunny, and search for hundreds of eggs hidden all around the mansion lawn.

The event is from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 12 at the Governor’s Mansion, 700 North Adams Street in Tallahassee.
