Eggciting things to do in Gauteng this Easter weekend

This Easter weekend gig guide is jam packed with enjoyable activities to do that are suitable for the whole family

As we’re heading to the end of the month of March, we are also steadily approaching the Easter weekend.

The ways  we now celebrate special holidays and occasions have changed drastically due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but with the correct protocol and safety precautions, it is possible for you to have a joyous Easter holiday with your family and other loved ones.

Easter, also known as Resurrection Sunday, is a Christian holiday that commemorates the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. The holiday is celebrated globally, with loved ones coming together to share meals with one another, children engaging in Easter egg hunts, and churches holding weekend long services.
