The Maldon Easter Fair is one of the oldest in Australia, it started way back in 1878!
The long weekend kicks off in fine form with The Great Aussie Scone Bake Competition & The Junior Apple Pie Eating Competition.
The Maldon Vintage Machinery Museum will be holding their annual Easter Vintage Engine Rally across the weekend as will the Maldon Golf Clubs Hole in One Competition.
The Easter Parade is on Easter Monday and has a wide ranging collection of things Maldonian, from fire trucks to the Garden Club, penny farthing bicycles, to occasional political statements.
Afterwards there is much merriment in the shopping areas of the village with an egg tossing competition, and all cafes and restaurants open for business.
Over the weekend expect a torchlight procession, Dancing in the Streets, a Billy Cart race, Maldon Collectors Market, and many other things for everyone to enjoy.
There is also a big raffle prize of a wheelbarrow full of goods, and that includes the wheelbarrow!
