A Gigantic Easter Eggstravaganza for all the family.
The Easter Egg Extravaganza at Traquair is the biggest event of its kind in the Borders. With over 5,500 mini eggs hidden in the Maze and some larger eggs to be won as well we guarantee that no child shall leave empty handed.
This year we are also building a gigantic Easter Egg which we will be inviting young and old to participate in painting and decorating that will be exhibited after the event.
The day is not all about chocolate and there are lot of other activities children to enjoy from scavenger and treasure hunts in the grounds and woodlands, musical instrument making, drumming and singing, egg decorating, storytelling, Easter bonnet making as well as Face Painting in the walled garden.
Michael Angelo, the extraordinary stilt man will be entertaining the crowds and leading the Easter procession at 3.00pm for everyone to show off their bonnets!
This year there are three egg hunts planned for the under 10’s.
At 1.30pm the first hunt will be for 5-6year olds in the Maze. Then at 3.30pm there will be an under 5’s egg scramble in the Old Walled Garden and at 4.00pm a hunt for 7-9 year olds will be held in the Maze.
