Easter Events & Attractions in the Lake District 2015

easterbunny_1.jpgThere is much going on in the Lake District and Cumbria over the Easter holidays with plenty of events and attractions for all the family. With Spring well underway, the Lake District is set to look especially beautiful.

The Lakeland Maze Farm Park near Kendal opens on Saturday 28th March until Sunday 12th April offering loads of fun activities. There'll be farm animals to see, an Easter egg hunt, indoor and outdoor play areas, pets corner and much, much more!

Beginning on Wednesday 1st April, the Lake District will once again host the north of England's biggest Easter egg search in The Great Peter Rabbit Easter Egg Hunt. Children and adults can seek 50 limited edition ceramic Easter eggs with great prizes to be won. This event is always hugely popular and all eggs are usually found by 4pm. Another highlight is the Good Friday Passion Play in Kendal, which returns after three years. In 2012 over 1,000 people watched the Easter scenes performed by Kendal Community Theatre.
