Hop­ping for Easter joy

Kids get to meet their bunny icon

Whitsunday Times - - KIDS’ ZONE -

DON’T be sur­prised if you see a group of ex­cited kids hop­ping around at the Reef Gate­way Ho­tel.

Con­sis­tent with tra­di­tion, kids will get the chance to par­tic­i­pate in Easter egg hunts out in the court­yard and take part in a range of fes­tive games and danc­ing and fes­tive ac­tiv­i­ties.

There will be photo op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able for par­ents to cap­ture their kids hop­ping with joy while feast­ing on co­pi­ous amounts of cho­co­late.

Adults will also get their fair share of the fun, with the bunny to ap­pear in the public bar for a “muckaround”.

Reef Gate­way mar­ket­ing man­ager Mark Wilkins said the Easter bunny’s trip was all about fos­ter­ing fes­tive joy.

“It’s been a bit of a tra­di­tion over the years to have the Easter bunny come to the Reef gate­way over the years,” he said.

“It will be sim­i­lar to when we brought Santa Claus in dur­ing Christ­mas time, so many peo­ple en­joyed the get­ting their pic­ture taken with Santa and re­ceiv­ing gifts and it will be very sim­i­lar to that.”

Kids at Lit­tle An­gel Zoo over the week­end could also be lucky enough to catch a glimpse, with the bunny ex­pected to make pe­ri­odic visits.

The Easter Bunny will make the venue his home on March 31 and April 7 from 6pm, lead­ing to Easter Sun­day.

For par­ents look­ing to treat their kids with a pre-Easter cho­co­late de­light, the Reef Gate­way is the place to be.
