Holiday surprise: Easter bunny with Hunter Corbo, 2.The Easter bunny could be at Maude St Mall on Saturday.


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.

Mr Sali said encouraged families to enjoy a day of entertainment in the central business district.

‘‘It’s a great day of entertainment and you can support local businesses as well,’’ he said.

The Easter activities are part of a campaign to introduce regular activities into the mall.

On May 1, one of Australia’s favourite entertainers, Mike Jackson, will teach people to weave tricks and magic with a simple loop of string.

Famous for his Bananas in Pyjamas and Dr Knickerbocker songs, Mr Jackson will also host a ukulele-playing workshop.

On May 2, the mall will host kite-making activities while on Saturday, May 3, there will be water balls, which allow kids to get inside an inflatable ball and walk on water.


Easter activities at Shepparton’s Maude St Mall begin on Saturday from 10.30am and go until 2.30pm.
