Kids of all ages are asked to come and help set these winged beauties free. Prizes will be given for the best ladybug costumes in three categories in different age groups (for actual kids), there will be face painting, live animals and nature displays.
The event runs from 10:00 AM until 1:00 PM, and admission to the gardens is $15 for adults, $10 for children ages 6-13 and kids 5 and under are free. (If you check the newspaper, there is a $5.00 off general admission coupon.) You can find all the details here.
Even without releasing ladybugs, Magnolia Plantation is well worth the visit. What a beautiful place.
You will find Magnolia Plantation at 3550 Ashley River Road in Charleston.
