The Easter Bunny’s Easter Egg Hunt

York's Chocolate Story , Kings Square, York, YO1 7LD 11:30 until 12:30

The Easter Bunny and his buddy are visiting York for an incredible Easter egg hunt experience. Children will join the bunny in amazing games, collect chocolate and meet colourful characters as they work to find the missing chocolate eggs. (Available at 11.30am and 2pm)

 

Led by costumed characters and starting outside the attraction in King’s Square, before moving to the beautiful surroundings of the Merchant Adventurers Hall, this is the perfect way for families to get into the Easter Spirit.

Be aware! The Easter Bunny loves fresh air and that this event will be entirely outside! Also: It is Yorkshire – so come weather prepared!
