Easter Egg Hunt
April 12, 2020
Briars Resort, Jackson’s Point
Over the years, we’ve been suspicious that the Easter Bunny has taken up residence in The Briars Forest. Every year on Easter that tricky bunny drops hundreds of eggs all over our grounds on his way to and from children’s houses. We can’t collect them all on our own, we need help. The Easter bunny is offering a Easter basket of goodies to every kid who helps him collect all his eggs. Rumor among staff is there’s even a golden egg out there with a extra special Briars present inside!
