The Maldon Easter Fair Committee is planning to create a Virtual Easter Parade online and they need your help to make all the fun of the fair continue again this year. It works like this: you create a fabulous entry in one of the sections below, photograph it or make a 10 second video of it and send it to by Easter Saturday 11 April at 12 noon.

All of the photos and videos will be combined into a film that will also feature some of the great tunes that our Maldon Brass Band play for us each Easter. This will be posted on the Maldon Easter Fair Facebook page at 10.30am on Easter Monday morning.

The entries will be judged by the Easter Fair Committee on Easter Sunday and the winners announced on Easter Monday at 2pm at the same time we will be drawing the Easter Raffle. 

There are some terrific prizes including cash and Easter Eggs up for grabs! Along with the collectable Easter Fair Prize Ribbons and Plaques. Including Best Commercial Entry, Best Private Entry, Best Community Group Entry…
