Easter fun found at Coal Creek

COAL Creek’s Easter egg hunt was a sold out success this year.

For the first time in three years, tickets for the hunt were snapped up, with 1500 people going through the door of the Korumburra venue by 12.30pm on Sunday.

Children spent the morning gathering eggs in their baskets and participating in family activities.

The puppet show for the children was a success, along with the fun of free family games and painting.

The Easter holiday session was also expanded this year to incorporate Easter Wars. The session ran at the same time as the Easter egg hunt so every child was entertained.

The Easter Wars were for children over 10 years old. Using pre painted figures, the children took command of Ninja Commando Easter Bunnies to save oppressed teddy bear peasants from terrible toads and retrieve eggs.

“It’s fantastic,” Coal Creek customer service officer Suzanne Conlain said.

“It’s great to see it so hugely successful again.”

Happy Easter: Korumburra’s Aoife and Phil O’Connell celebrated Easter at Coal Creek.
