Have fun with the locals Longest Easter egg avenue Thu, Mar 24 Ludwigsburg, Blühendes Barock

Ludwigsburg’s Blühendes Barock is setting up their annual Easter egg avenue again, determined to make it even bigger than last year. To do so, they are collecting colorfully painted (real, no plastic please) eggs including a thread and hole to hang it up. For the first 10.000 donated eggs they will donate 50 cents each to local charity organizations. That’s €5000 of goodness and all you need to do is have a fun crafting session with your children or friends. The Rosengarten’s cafeteria accepts all donations until April 3, shortly after you will be able to take a stroll between blooming flowers and your seasonal masterpieces. Help give a happy Easter to disabled, sick and less fortunate friends in your area as well as beautifully shining decorations to the park and all its visitors.
