Roger and Jessica Rabbit from the movie “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” as well as Mr. Bun from the former “Calvin and Hobbes” comic strip, the White Rabbit and March Hare from “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” Rabbit from Winnie the Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood, and The Velveteen Rabbit, might want to enjoy an Easter egg hunt this weekend, among the many ideas for outings across the Grand Strand.
