Easter On the Green

The Village Green hosts more than 100 events each year. Many of these enhance the lifestyle of the Cashiers area for residents and visitors alike. Easter Weekend features events that celebrate the hope, renewal, and joy of the Spring holiday.

 For the first time this year, Cashiers area churches are planning to observe the Stations of the Cross on The Village Green. This walking devotional experience open to residents and visitors in the area features scripture, prayer and reflection to recall the events of Good Friday. Participants will meet at 4:00 P.M. Friday, April 14, at The Village Green Commons on Frank Allen Road in Cashiers.

The annual S’More Kids Klothes Easter Egg Hunt will begin at 10:30 A.M. Saturday, April 15, for children 10 years old and under.

“Grab your Easter basket and hippity-hoppity over to the Village Play area,” says Ann Self, executive director of The Village Green.  Hundreds of treat-filled Easter eggs will be scattered around the park for hunters who will be divided according to age.  Activities will also include entertainment, a free lunch, and a visit with the Easter Bunny at The Village
Green Commons.

The following day on Easter Sunday, churches in Cashiers will conduct the Community Easter Sunrise Service at 7:00 A.M. Sunday, April 16, at the Gazebo and Lawn of The Village Green. Everyone is invited to celebrate Easter with music and scripture as dawn breaks over the mountains.

“What a wonderful way to laud the new creation in a such a magnificent, natural setting,” says Self.  Those attending are encouraged to bring a lawn chair.

The Village Green provides a beautiful, free public space, however, it’s a nonprofit organization that depends on contributions to maintain the park and provide such an exceptional venue for the community.  To learn more about The Village Green and these events or to make a donation, call (828) 743-3434 or visit villagegreencashiersnc.com.
