This Easter, Monaco is stepping up to spoil its youngsters. Two special “Easter egg hunt” events are being organized by the mayor’s office.

In Monaco, the Easter egg hunt is (almost) open! As this Sunday’s Easter approaches, children and their parents even have a choice. Two events reserved for children who are 3 and older are being organized by the mayor’s office.

Two events for the little ones

The first will take place at the Jardin Exotique on Saturday, April 20th at 10 am and 11 am. It’s a special event since the young ones will be given a plant on their arrival. Then it’s up to them to find a similar plant in the and nooks of the public garden. Those with the greenest thumbs will win a bag of chocolate eggs, a reward that should encourage many young Monegasques to try their luck! The organizers have also planned to limit the number of slots available to keep the events fluid and fun. To participate, registration is required, either by phone (+377 93 15 29 80) or by sending an email (jardin-exotique@mairie.mc). Good news: admission is free for children and those who accompany them.

The second event will take place in the pathways of the Princess Antoinette Park on Sunday, April 21st, from 2 to 5 pm. This is becoming quite the tradition in Monaco because this Easter egg hunt, organized jointly by the city’s department of recreation and La Boîte de Jeux, is in its 9th edition. This event is reserved for children up to 12 years old who attend school within the Principality. Registration takes place on-site on the day of the event.
