Easter Celebrations Go On Despite Rainy Weather

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A few clouds weren't enough to put a damper on an annual Easter weekend tradition in Middle Tennessee.

Thousands of people turned out for the Art Hop at Cheekwood on Saturday. More than 20,000 eggs were hidden throughout the gardens there. Egg hunts were held every half hour throughout the day, and even some of the smallest fans hopped in on the fun. 

There were arts and crafts activities along with face painting. And what would an egg hunt be without the Easter Bunny.

Organizers said it was a great way to get folks out to see the botanical gardens.

"This is a huge day of the year for us. We have a great audience that comes out. Both members and non-members alike, visitors from all around Middle Tennessee, but we usually see great crowds," said Hillary Steinwinder, Cheekwood's Director of Education. 

This was the 21st year for for the Spring Art Hop.
