Load of choco­late to egg-xit chop­per

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s the Easter bunny!

Thou­sands of Easter eggs will be drop­ping from the sky as a he­li­copter hov­ers over the Auck­land Do­main on April 18.

Af­ter the he­li­copter has safely left the area, the race is on for chil­dren to storm the field and col­lect the eggs.

The spec­ta­cle is part of the free an­nual Egg Day Out which will be at the Auck­land Do­main, North Har­bour Sta­dium and Voda­fone Events Cen­tre on Good Fri­day.

More than 30,000 Cad­bury Easter eggs will be handed out.

Fam­i­lies can join in the Easter egg hunt and egg and spoon race while kids have fun on bouncy cas­tles and have their faces painted.

Sky­work He­li­copters are part­ner­ing with Equip­pers Church to host the event with all money raised go­ing to the Make-A-Wish Foun­da­tion.

Last year thou­sands of fam­i­lies flocked to Orakei Do­main to take part.

The event is from 11am to 4pm, and the rain date is April 19.
