Easter Joy at Annual Bonnet Competition

April 19, 2017

Leicester Market became a hub of Easter egg-citement on Saturday 15 April, as it hosted its annual Easter Bonnet parade and competition as part of the Easter weekend.

In the build-up to the day, children from across Leicestershire had been getting crafty with their Easter designs – and the bonnets on show were nothing short of spectacular. As part of the judging process, youngsters were asked to parade their bonnet designs.

Thereafter, three winners from two different age groups were presented with a fantastic prize – a brand-new bicycle – each donated by Leicester Market traders.

Congratulations to all of our Easter bonnet winners on the day and thanks to all that entered the competition.

The day before, Good Friday, saw an Easter Fun Day take part at Beaumont Leys Market, featuring free face painting and balloon modelling.

Everybody attended were able to decorate an Easter egg and was able to take their egg home.
