Easter hunt for toddlers and kids at Kenilworth Cape Town

If you live in Cape Town and are still looking for something to do this weekend, why not head over to Kenilworth Racecourse for some family fun? On Saturday, 19 March children can participate in a ‘Hunt for the Golden Easter Egg’, where R2, 000 and R8, 000 in prize money is up for grabs.

There’s a Toddler Hunt for children aged between three and six and a Junior Hunt for Children aged between seven and eleven. The lucky toddler who finds the illusive Golden Egg will win R2000 and the winning scholar will win R8000. Both will be paid as contributions to their respective educations.

Unfortunately, the hosts are strict when it comes to the age criteria for the event. “We are strict with the age criteria, especially when it comes to winning the prize. We have to draw a line in the sand,” said a spokesperson for the event.

As such, parents must bring their children’s birth certificates to the course in order to register for the hunts. Registration takes place between 11h30 and 13h00 and terms and conditions apply. The Toddler Hunt will take place between race three and four at approximately 13h45. The Junior Hunt will take place between races four and five at approximately 14H20. The prize giving and cheque handover will take place at about 15h45.

There’s plenty of added kids entertainment. “There will be a jumping castle as well as bunny masks to colour in for the children. They will also be able to colour in eggs and make marshmellow bunnies (pictured) and chickens,” added the spokesperson.

Gates open at 11H00 and entrance is free.
