Easter is upon us once again and there are lots of egg-cellent events and offers on this year. From egg hunting to fish frying and flowers there’s something to please everyone this Easter, cracking! This Christian holiday is recognised by religious and non-religious alike as a celebration of new life, which is symbolised by the Easter egg.
Head on down to the Cowra Japanese Garden on Saturday 26th March to take part in the annual Easter Egg Hunt. This morning of fun will be open for children aged 0-12 years and their parents. Along with the entertaining search of the garden for hidden eggs there will be free face painting and a free jumping castle. Children will be divided into age groups with each group searching a different area of the garden. And don’t worry, all children are guaranteed to find
an egg so no chocoholics will go home empty handed! The Easter bunny himself
will also be making an appearance for a cuddle and photo opportunity. If your little ones would like to take part you must register your child’s attendance by 12 noon on Thursday 24th March by calling 6341 2233 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s name and age. Gates will open at 8.30am and all participants should be present by 9am. Admission for children is
free when accompanied by a paying adult.
Easter Fact: Did you know that the Christian practice of abstaining from meat on Friday
was the reason for the creation of the McDonalds Fillet-o-Fish burger? Fish has traditionally been eaten on Good Friday by Christians since around the 2nd century. Christians abstained from eating meat on this day as a reminder of the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, which
is commemorated every year by people of this faith. If you intend to follow this tradition
or if you have a palate more suited to savoury than sweet, fresh seafood will be in Canowindra on Wednesday 23rd March.
Be sure to stock up on delicious sea delights such as baby octopus, Balmain bugs, opened oysters, smoked salmon, blue swimmer crabs, green king prawns, barramundi lemon sole and Atlantic salmon to keep those egg hunters well fed. But be sure to get in early before they’re all gone. Seafood Express will be on Gaskill Street from 8.30am to 11am.
Above all, Easter is a holiday to enjoy spending quality time with family and friends and eating until every button and zip must be undone, Happy Easter everyone!
