Chocolatey family fun and games await Durbanites and holidaymakers at this year’s Beacon Eggsplorer and Family Fun Day.
Taking place for two days over the Easter weekend, April 20 and 21, the event guarantees good times and good vibes while families and friends hunt for Easter eggs in the Durban Botanic Gardens.
Suitable for the entire family, the hunt was designed by professional team building company, Beach and Bush, to ensure non-stop laughter and entertainment.
Event organiser, Alene Naidoo said, “Whether you are four or 84, we’ve got you covered with a host of activities throughout the day.”
The hunt: Taking place throughout the day, the hunt is a combination of spot the eggs and other challenge-based activities where families can participate at their own pace or compete against each other. Once you’ve found all your eggs, you can claim your delicious Beacon surprise! As an extra treat, the Beacon Bunny has hidden 500 golden eggs to be found!
Baby hunt: Your little one’s safety is a priority and there will be a dedicated and supervised space for children, aged one to three, to hunt for eggs.
Other activities: Cupcake decorating, ceramic painting, interactive slime stand, face-painting, a soft play station, sand art, pony rides and more.
Easter Bunny meet and greet: Say hi to the Beacon Bunny and his friends or stop by the Beacon photobooth to claim a keepsake photo to remember the day.
Naidoo added, “This is an extra special year as the Botanic Gardens turn 170-years-old and we have an exciting surprise in store to celebrate.”
