Whether you’re Catholic / Protestant / Jewish / Muslim … I don’t really care! We’re talking about magical bunnies delivering chocolate eggs!!!
If you are looking for something to do this weekend with the kids the Secours populaire ( a charity ) is organising an egg hunt for Easter in the Grande Blottereau Park. It starts at 10:30 and be prepared to queue if previous years are anything to go by.
It’ll cost 4 euros per kid … they’ll hunt down some plastic eggs of some sort and at the end they’ll get to give them over and get some real chocolate eggs and sweets … again if previous years are anything to go by.
There will also no doubt be a kids makeup stall (Tigers and Fairies)… peche a la ligne 😮 Can you go to any kids event without there being one?
Not to mention food and various other games. Again be prepared to fork over some funds so bring some cash with you.
It’s enjoyable, the egg hunt can be a bit overwhelming especially for little ones who aren’t so fast and up against kids twice or three times their age in the hunt.
We’ll be there weather permitting.
Is 4 quid too steep or the prospect of getting across Nantes a bit too much for you? Why not organise your own easter egg hunt with some of the local kids. Buy a few small easter eggs and place them around some open space nearby and let your little terrors … erm loved ones run wild 🙂 We’ll also be doing that on Monday (Bank Holiday) with friends who are busy working Sunday.
You can get to the Grand Blottereau by taking the line 1 tram to the Mairie de Doulon tram stop. Cross the tram / rail tracks and continue on for about 500 meters.
