The Easter long weekend may have came and gone, but that does not mean the fun needs to stop! In fact, the Easter festivities at Sentosa HarbourFront are just getting started.
Good Friday saw the official launch of The Great Egg-Venture, Singapore’s biggest Easter Fiesta at the Sentosa HarbourFront. And when I say Singapore's BIGGEST Easter Fiesta, I mean it. For one, it encompasses the largest Egg Hunt activity that Singapore has ever seen - one that will take egg hunters on a journey up a hill, across the harbour and onto an island resort!
The Great Egg-Venture kicked off over the weekend with a Sentosa Egg Fiesta at Emerald Pavilion on Siloso Beach, and it was one boisterous affair.
There were loads of arts and craft activities for the little ones... all which centered around the Easter Egg theme, for obvious reasons.
But it was a garden with a twist - the kids had to walk on eggs in order to search for the eggs!
And yes, those were real eggs that Ash and Ayd walked on. I was tempted to give it a go, but I was afraid the organisers would run out of eggs.
For the younger kids, a separate Egg Hunt area was set aside for them to burrow through the sand to look for plastic eggs. I thought that was a very nice touch.
Ale though, was more interested in snapping a photo with good old Mother Goose.
While Ayd even found himself on stage to help out in a magic show!
For the first time, 100 eggs have been planted around the entire Sentosa HarbourFront area, which includes Sentosa, St James Power Station, RWS, VivoCity, Harbour Front and even atop Mount Faber! The eggs measure 1.5 metres by 1 metre, so they should not be too hard to spot. They have been colourfully decorated by local artists from various associations, charity groups and schools, and this is one such example.
All eggs have a unique QR code on them. Using the QR code reader in your smart phone, scan the QR code on the egg you have found. Do note that you have to visit http://www.bit.ly/shbaegghunt to register via your Facebook account beforehand in order to store the eggs that you have located.
The more eggs you find, the more eggs you will see on your “Egg Found” screen in the Facebook app. And when the hunt ends on 5 May (11.59pm), the person with the most number of eggs found will be crowned the winner of the inaugural Great Egg-venture Egg Hunt and win $5,000 Cash and & a FOZAILOFF JEWELRY Pink Sapphires & Diamond Egg Pendant worth $5,890! Participants with the second and third most number of eggs found will win the 2nd prize ($3,000 Cash) and 3rd prize ($2,000 Cash) respectively.
But the fantastic thing about the Egg Hunt is in addition to the top 3 prizes, you can also redeem prizes as you go about on the egg hunt. The more eggs you find, the more prizes you can redeem.
There are different tiers of prizes that one can redeem; for example, if you found 18 eggs, you can redeem it for a $50 Starbucks Gift Card or a One-Day Adult Pass for Two to Adventure Cove Waterpark for 28 eggs. Or how about a One Night stay in a Deluxe Sea View Room including buffet breakfast for two persons at Shangri-La's Rasa Sentosa in exchange for 88 eggs found?
Sounds good, no? But hurry, because prizes are limited so do go on your egg-hunting adventure really soon!
