Family fun and fireworks for Easter
March 21, 2022
A bumper long weekend of family fun
and free fireworks is being lined-up for Easter at Clacton Pier.
As with all bank holidays, there will
be something eggstra special for all ages to enjoy across the four days.
Youngsters will get the chance to
search out a trail of coloured eggs hidden around the attraction; there will be
free live music and popular children’s entertainer James Magic will be up to
On top of all that the first free
fireworks extravaganza of the year will be lighting up the skies.
The first 200 children taking part in
the hunt will receive an Easter egg and everyone who enters will go into a draw
to win an annual ride pass.
There will also be a free egg for the
first 300 children going into Discovery Bay soft play on the Sunday.
Pier director Billy Ball said it will
be the first time the pier will be open for the Easter weekend for three years.
“Due to Covid regulations we were
closed in 2020 and 2021 and we are looking forward to welcoming visitors again
this year,” he said.
“This is the first bank holiday of
the season, and the early forecast is for some good weather in April so
hopefully things will be set fair.
“We have a strong programme of
activities and entertainment for all ages to enjoy and we are looking forward
to a bumper weekend.”
The fireworks extravaganza will be
the first of ten displays to be staged this year, including one to celebrate the
Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and six in the school summer holidays.
