Central Otago Mirror - - WHAT’S ON -

To cel­e­brate the end of the mar­ket sea­son, Re­mark­ables Mar­ket will host an Easter Fun Day on April 15.

A fam­ily-friendly event will be free for ev­ery­one and will fea­ture crafts, races, egg hunts, en­ter­tain­ment and prizes.

Start­ing at 9am, the Fun Day kicks off with an Easter Egg Hunt which will con­tinue through­out the day un­til 2pm.

Queen­stown artist Maki Ku­miko from The Paint Peo­ple will be of­fer­ing free face paint­ing for chil­dren from 10am.

Ku­miko will also be giv­ing quick Easter Egg paint­ing lessons at 11am and 12pm with brushes and eggs pro­vided.

Par­ents can join their chil­dren in egg and spoon races from 12.30am, with prizes avail­able for ev­ery cat­e­gory.

Mar­ket man­ager Sher­ryn Smith said this year’s Re­mark­ables Easter mar­ket would be the big­gest Saturday mar­ket yet.

‘‘Be­fore the sun’s up my Easter helpers and I will be busy hid­ing a bumper batch of egg cards around Re­mark­ables Mar­ket, which chil­dren can then re­deem for mini choco­late eggs at our mar­ket in­for­ma­tion stall.

‘‘This past sea­son has cer­tainly been our busiest in terms of stalls and vis­i­tors, and we think our ex­panded chil­dren’s play area has played a part in our grow­ing pop­u­lar­ity, so we will be fur­ther ex­pand­ing fa­cil­i­ties there be­fore we re­open,’’ Smith said.
