All the fun of the fair . Maldon at Easter 143rd anniversary The tradition continues
The Maldon Easter Fair is one of the oldest in Australia, it was started in 1878.
The Easter Parade is on Easter Monday and is 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 are open for business.
Maldon Golf Club hosts a Hole in One competition on Easter Saturday, and the Maldon Vintage Machinery Museum will be holding their annual Easter Machinery Rally across the weekend.
Over the weekend there's a torchlight procession, Dancing in the Streets, a billycart race, a scone bake competition, a quilt show, 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!
