Easter Antics for the Launch of the ‘Boora Bunny Egg Hunt’

Hop along to Lough Boora Discovery Park this Easter for the ultimate Bord na Móna family event
The Boora Bunny Egg Hunt and Easter Egg-stravaganza at Bord na Móna’s Lough Boora Discovery Park has been launched today. Families across the Midlands and beyond are being called upon to take part in the first family Lough Boora event of the year. The event takes place in Lough Boora Discovery Park, Co Offaly on Easter Saturday, April 4th.
The action kicks off from 12 noon with a very special Easter egg hunt along the spectacular Lough Boora sculpture trail. The Boora Bunny and his Easter helpers will be on hand throughout the day to help little egg hunters collect special eggs with a chocolate treat inside and the first 500 children to register for the Egg Hunt will receive a full-size Easter Egg at the finish!
Each child will be gifted with a bunny mask when they register to look the part as they enjoy the day’s activities. We have a fun-filled day planned including a Bunny Hop Race, the much-loved Egg and Spoon race, Easter egg painting workshops as well as a range of exciting arts and crafts activities.
After the Easter egg hunt, families can make the most of their visit to the stunning parkland. Maps are available onsite outlining the various walks waiting to be explored or for those a little bit more adventurous, hire a bike on-site and take in the beauty on one of the many dedicated cycling tracks.
Speaking at today’s launch, Bord na Móna’s Sara Byrne said; “Come and join us in Bord na Móna’s stunning Lough Boora Discovery Park for this exciting Easter event! Meet the Boora Bunny and fill your baskets with chocolate treats! There’s loads of fun activities planned throughout the day to keep your little ones entertained”.
Children will be asked to register with a parent upon arrival for the free of charge day out and while there is no admission charge there will be fundraising throughout the day for local Ferbane and Kilcormac Scout clubs.
