Hunt the chocolate eggs at subtropical gardens’ Easter spectacular
2:00pm Wednesday 20th March 2013 in News
FLUFFY bunnies and giant chocolate eggs are some of the prizes on offer at a Giant Easter Egg Hunt at Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens.
Families are being invited to join the annual choc fest and rummage in the Jurassic undergrowth, which is being sponsored by the Dorset Echo.
The Giant Easter Egg Hunt takes place over the course of four days from Good Friday, March 29, Easter Saturday, March 30, Easter Sunday, March 31 and Easter Monday, April 1.
Visitors who are lucky enough to find the Golden Horseshoe can win one giant chocolate Easter Egg every day. Other smaller tokens will be hidden near the pathways so there is no need to clamber through the flowerbeds.
These tokens can be exchanged for one of 8,000 yummy Cadbury’s Crème Eggs. Other free activities on offer include a children’s entertainer, bouncy castle and face painting.
General manager of Abbotsbury Tourism John Houston said: ‘Come and enjoy a traditional Easter Egg hunt on a grand scale at Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens.
“There’s a real sense of rebirth and rejoicing as the spring blossoms unfurl here.
‘We think this spring will be a riot of colour at Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens.
“So many of our camellias are flowering or about to bud, and our large leaved rhododendrons are about to explode into bloom.”
Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens are open from 10am to 6pm.
Last admission is 5pm. Normal admission prices apply.
