Well, Belfast One – The Belfast City Centre Improvement District – has hatched an eggs-sellent plan to help you do just that with the launch of the Belfast City Centre Egg Hunt.
Kicking off Saturday April 8 and running to Tuesday April 18, the city will be adorned with ten giant eggs nestled in shops, hotels and restaurants throughout the city centre. Families are invited to hunt them all down for a chance of taking home the £500 prize which includes £250 worth of toy store vouchers, restaurant vouchers, cinema passes and more.
Speaking at the launch of the initiative, Julie McCullagh, Marketing Manager at Belfast One said: “We are very excited to launch our first ever Easter Egg hunt in the city which is aimed at encouraging families to explore Belfast whilst having a lot of fun in the city.
“We had so much fun coming up with the clues and the locations for the eggs and we hope that families will embrace the idea and come in search of the eggs, whilst sampling the delights that Belfast has to offer.
“Entry forms can be downloaded from our website www.belfastone.co.uk/easter/ and in each of the egg locations – it is then up to each entrant to walk around the city, using the clues to find the eggs.
“Once you find six or more eggs you can then post your entry form at one of our dedicated post boxes at House of Fraser, CastleCourt customer relations, or Marks and Spencer or post it back to us at Belfast One. The winner will be chosen at random on Wednesday 19 April.
“Additionally, families can be in with a chance of winning one of three £50 vouchers for a shop of their choice simply by sharing photos of themselves on the hunt on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #BelfastEggHunt.
Julie concluded: “We encourage as many people as possible to join in the fun and visit the city this Easter for a chance to win fantastic prizes.”
Belfast One has developed a five year marketing strategy is to drive domestic footfall into the City Centre by promoting the fantastic retail, leisure, culture and entertainment offering and showcasing what a brilliantly unique city Belfast is.
