Abbey Gardens was hopping April 8 as hundreds of Highlanders enjoyed the warm weather by attending the annual ‘Easter at the Gardens’ event.

There was an easter egg hunt for children, which sold out with 200 participants, and other activities including cookie decorating, springtime crafts, and a pony petting zoo.

There was also a photo booth where people could take pictures with the Easter Bunny.

Ashley McAllister, director of operations at Abbey Gardens, said the event was a huge success.

“It’s amazing seeing so many people here having a great time – this is why we hold events like this, to see smiles on people’s faces,” she said.
