The day will involve an Easter treasure hunt, a baby animal petting zoo, music, dance, face painting and an Easter bonnet parade across 8th Avenue, Whatley Crescent and Railway Parade.

Retailer and co-organiser Cindy Wieringa said it was a chance to showcase what Maylands had to offer.

“Maylands is a great area and the locals are loyal, there is so much going on with the small bars and vintage clothes shops, but retail is tough,” Ms Wieringa said.

“Things had dropped off, but they are picking up again and we thought this was a great way for all of us to get together and promote the area.”

Festivities kick off at 11am, with the petting zoo from noon-3pm, and gold coin donations for some activities.

Money raised will go to animal rescue.
