Egg Quest, a public art project hosted by the Dothan Area Botanical Gardens, returns to the 46-acre facility beginning in mid March. This event combines the artistic skills of area students and local artists with the beauty of the gardens and will continue through Easter Sunday.
Begun in 2018, Egg Quest involves the display of approximately two dozen 4-ft wooden eggs that have been creatively painted. The colorful eggs are scattered throughout the garden for visitors to see and enjoy.
A children’s map/questionnaire will encourage children to answer questions about certain eggs. A completed questionnaire, including your vote for your favorite egg, makes a child eligible to win a large Easter basket in a drawing on the Sunday before Easter . On that day, Egg Quest Day, admission to the Gardens is free from 3-6 pm. Participants usually include local area schools, civic groups, and local artists.
