Easter lands early this year, with Good Friday being Friday, April 2. Chocolate, Easter bonnet parades, feasts of seafood, getaways and day trips are just around the corner. An Easter egg hunt never goes astray, and a trip to the local ice-cream parlour is set to keep the indulgent days flowing. Ice Cream a’La Copenhagen in Dromana has 57 flavours so you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Cafes and restaurants will be a popular choice as our community continues to support small businesses, local family-owned companies and relishing in a delicious meal that can be enjoyed dining in, as opposed to last year’s ever frequent takeaway nights. A wander along the Seaford pier isn’t complete without a visit to Beach Café Seaford. While Donato est. 1980 is the ultimate family friendly café, with furry friends welcome and their famous vanilla slice.
Of course, there’s a plethora of children’s activities across the Greater Frankston region and Mornington Peninsula area. Why not skate at Sk8house, play at the Kidz Shed, or get your creative juices flowing at Creative Makes and Colour Your World Art. Stop by Somerville Central Shopping Centre so the kids can enjoy the free kids’ Easter craft and meet the Easter Bunny.
After the kids have burnt off their extra energy, it’s Mum’s turn for some retail therapy at Linen House for some new home décor and bedding or discover your next favourite dress at Creek and Bay.
Whatever you’re hopping to do this Easter, Mornington Peninsula Magazine wishes you a happy Easter.
