A eggs-tra special guest could be making a special appearance at Shepparton’s Maude St Mall on Saturday.
The mall will host an egg-stravaganza of special activities to help families celebrate Easter on Saturday, with face-painting, a jumping castle and other activities.
‘‘All the kids should keep an eye out during lunchtime in the CBD as they could spot the Easter bunny, who might have some Easter eggs,’’ Greater Shepparton City Council economic development project officer Rohan Sali said.
Enchanted Rainbow will also have craft workshops making special Easter baskets to leave for the Easter bunny, and face painting.
A Spiderman-themed jumping castle with a slide and rock-climbing wall will also help keep kids entertained.
