Ballymena Shoppers Enjoy Easter Treats
SHOPPERS to Ballymena Town Centre were egg-static to receive a selection of sweet treats during their visit on Saturday 31st March, as the town hosted a range of Easter celebrations organised by the Ballymena Business Improvement District (BID).
A number of characters took to the streets, including the Easter Bunny, an Easter Chick, an Easter fox and bear as well as the stilt-walking Spring Hare, greeting delighted members of the public and giving away over 500 free crème eggs.
Prizes were also presented to five lucky winners following an Easter Competition on the Ballymena Means Facebook page. Followers had been asked to locate a number of Easter Eggs that had been placed in various window displays throughout the town centre and submit photographs under the Facebook post. The competition received a fantastic response from eagle-eyed shoppers who went hunting through the streets of Ballymena in search of the eggs.
Speaking about the Easter Celebrations, BID Manager, Alison Moore said, “We were delighted with the positive response to our Easter Celebrations from both shoppers and traders alike. There was a great buzz throughout the town centre with the presence of the Easter characters and shoppers, who came from as far away as Australia, were delighted with their sweet treats.
“This reinforces the fact that Ballymena has so much more to offer – not just with the various range of independent retailers and high street brands that really do cater for everyone, but also by going the extra mile to enhance the visitors experience whether it’s by providing extra treats during their visit or by engaging with our followers via social media. We look forward to organising more exciting events in the future.”
