Easter means different things to different people. For many it has religious significance and for others, it is a time to get together with loved ones and spend some quality time together. For kids however, it is all about the chocolate! The weekend is jam-packed with Easter Egg Hunts, making Easter bonnets and consuming large amounts of chocolate. Here are just some of the events held around Nelson Bay that your kids will enjoy...hopefully without a sugar overload and a sore stomach!
