The Easter Egg Rolling Extravaganza held in Avenham Park on Easter Monday is a tradition held in Preston for many years. Hard boiled eggs decorated with various colours are rolled down the hill with great excitement.
Alongside the time-honoured egg rolling, a popular hit with the youngsters, there is plenty of music, expect jazz and samba to join the distinctive sound of the brass band's as well as craft stalls, Punch & Judy, a children's funfair and other attractions that in previous years have included displays by the Turbary Bird of Prey Centre. A special feature is the children's Easter Bonnet Parade, judged by Preston's mayor and mayoress.
When the weather is fine it's a great day out, and lots of fun.

Favorite thing: If you are coming to Preston and plan on spend some time in the City, take my advice, and use one of the Park and Rides.
The buses are cheap and easy to use. They run frequently into the centre avoiding all the jams and taking out the hassle of dodging the other vehicles.
You will find there is a P+ R on the Docklands, which is west of the City and one at the Capitol Centre, to the south of Preston, both are well sign posted, and buses run every 10 minutes and cost around £1. depending on the time of day.
The bus's are all new and are run by Preston bus Company
