As we all adjust to life in COVID-19 lockdown, let’s make Easter 2020 a memorable one – a staycation to remember.
There are plenty of things you and your family can do this Easter weekend, with the majority done from the comfort of your home.
Mayor Phil Goff says staying at home is not just the right thing to do it’s the law.
“In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, it’s really important that we all stay home and stay local to break the chain of transmission and save lives.
Auckland Council have you and your family covered this easter, with loads of fun activities you can do from the comfort of your home, or locally in your neighbourhood – check them out:
Family fun this Easter
Staying put this Easter doesn’t have to be boring. For a memorable staycation event you can join in the fun of the Auckland Council Parks Great Easter Camp Out-In – an overnight adventure for the whole family.
Starting on Saturday 11 April at 4pm, Aucklanders of all ages are encouraged to set up camp in their front yard, backyard (depending on the weather), lounge or bedroom for the night.
Whether you choose to set up a tent, fort, bivvy, den, tepee or yurt, you will find inspiration and tips on the Auckland Parks Facebook page.
