  Lady Clown at Easter
 

The SOUTH MAROUBRA EASTER BONNET PARADE has been held at the pharmacy every Easter Saturday from 11am-12 noon for more than 20 years. A very lively clown entertains the children & the Easter Bunny bounces along much to the kids delight. The big Easter bonnet parade follows and the boy and girl with judged to have the best bonnets receive a terrific prize. Next on the program is the giant Easter egg hunt so the little ones all collect some eggs and go home happy. This is a fantastic hour's Easter fun for mums, dads and grandparents as well as the kids and something to mark down in the diary for next Easter Saturday.
