Warwick Easter Fair 2010

The first Warwick Easter Fair was held in 2009 and proved popular with visitors and locals. Ideally located the Fair saw a steady stream of shoppers dropping in while they completed a last minute shop for easter.
Especially popular was the Easter Egg hunt with a whole heap of kids rocking up first thing in the morning to greet 'Bugs' the Easter Bunny and ready to hunt for eggs.

This year it is sure to be even better, the Fair is made more than just a market by the little extra activities that make it so fun!

'Bugs' will be back again, more kids activities are planned and some new features are soon to be confirmed.

New Stallholders are always welcome!
