Brechin is set to celebrate Easter in style this Saturday, thanks to the BRAVO Brechin group’s ‘Easter in the City’ event.

The event, which will see a huge number of activities take place during the day, is the first ‘in the City’ event this year.

As part of the event, a window competition launched on Monday (April 14).

A number of competitions are also taking place, including a painting egg competition with entries, which include name, age and contact number, to be submitted to the City Hall after 9 a.m.

Younger children can also take part in the paper egg decoration competition, with the paper eggs available from Sweets and Treats. A spokesperson for the event said: “The competition will be judged by our favourite panto Queen.”

Children are all urged to dress up as their favourite character as part of the fancy dress competition.

An Easter Raffle, with tickets priced at £5, will also be drawn on Saturday, with the BRAVO Bear set to do the honours. The grand prize is a journey for two in a Rolls Royce, which includes a high tea.

During Saturday, a display of vintage and classic vehicles will be in the town, fun stalls will also be out in force, along with a table sale in the City Hall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

There will also be the hotly anticipated puppet show. Tickets for the event sold out quickly last year, and organisers are urging anyone interested to get their ticket quick to avoid disappointment.

Tickets for the event - which also includes a goody bag - are available to purchase from Les Turriff’s florist and Sweets and Treats. Tickets cost £5 for one child and one adult, £8 for two children and an adult, and £10 for two children and two adults.

There are four shows, with the first starting at 12 noon, and then at 45 minute intervals until the final showing which starts at 2.15 p.m.

The Easter bonnet and bunnets competition entries will be on display at the Brechin Town House Museum from tomorrow (Thursday).

Organisers have urged anyone entering the competition to please remember to include your name and contact number when submitting your entry.

The ‘Easter in the City’ celebrations are set to end with a traditional egg roll down the High Street.
