It’s a little known secret, but Pete’s favourite holiday is actully Easter. He tells me it’s because it’s the first real indication that winter has truly buggered off, but I think it’s mainly because it not only justifies but, celebrates an insane amount of hot cross bun devouring.
As we’ve been away in Dubai for the last two Easters we thought we should do something a bit more special and fun this year. And for us there was only one event for it…. Easter Sunday at Musselburgh Racecourse. It’ll be the first time I’ve been to the races and I am beyond excited to go! Who knows maybe this will be the start of a new Easter weekend tradition.
As one of the biggest social events of the Easter weekend, this year the five-star visitor attraction has added family entertainments and free entry for children to its hotly anticipated line up.
There’s going to be a Kids Zone which will cater for little ones of all ages, and will feature a variety of fun fair rides, all completely free. Top quality racing featuring the £100,000 Queen’s Cup, live music, fairground rides, yummy food and drinks, face painting, game stalls, and an Easter Egg hunt too…..there is something for everyone. With the Easter Bunny making an appearance it’s truly not an event anyone should to miss out on.
Did I mention that kids go free???
There are various amazing packages available to indulge your tastebuds, but for those wanting to experience the races in true style there’s the Pommery Pop Package which along with general admission and a race programme includes a 200ml bottle of Pommery Pop champagne! If I didn’t have the little one with me I know which package I’d be fully embracing.
Now what am I going to wear?! ❤
