On Saturday April 7, The Westin is putting on an afternoon of egg-related Easter events, including egg and spoon racing, egg painting, the traditional Easter egg hunt and the main event – the great Easter Bunny Chase. Let your children loose after the giant pink rabbit and the first one to catch the frolicsome furry one will win a prize. No details were given on exactly how to tackle the Easter Bunny; we’re assuming any form of unarmed combat is acceptable. Plus there’s a bouncy castle and every child that comes along will get a certificate of participation that will be signed and stamped by ‘Thumper’.
