Giant Easter Egg Hunt in Parc de Thoiry
Since 35 years, the Château and Parc de Thoiry celebrate Easter with their incredible Easter Egg Hunt. Originally given by the Comte and the Comtesse de La Panouse for their children and friends, the annual hunt has become a « must » for the Thoiry estates’ visitors.
From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m, young and old whizz off to the Gardens on a hunt for 8 000 chocolate eggs hidden in the bushes, tree stumps and other hideaways. And for this exceptionnal event in an exceptional place…there are some exceptionnal Easter Eggs to be found ! 20 « surprise » eggs offer the luckiest hunters the possibility to receive Thoiry entries or annual passports for the Château and Park de Thoiry during all the year of 2012. Insatiable chocolate lovers may find even more goodies in the 2300 meters of tours and detours of the giant yew maze. At the entry to the garden Promenade, don’t forget to present your ticket number for the special gift drawing. Maybe you’ll be the lucky one to leave with a chocolat rabbit repartirez !
And, so that all our young hunters will have an equal chance, there is a special hunting ground for the tiniest hunters with special hiding places adapted to their age and size.
It’s Easter for animals too !
The animals in Thoiry Castle’s ZooPark are not forgotten on these days of Easter Celebration and have their own special delicious goodies to eat. ‘Eggs’ made of fruits frozen in fruit syrup, specially invented for them, delight the primates while the carnivores munch on »eggs » made of bits of meat… During the programmed Animal Feedings , or simply at the détour of a path, keep a lookout and you may surprise the animals enjoying their special treats!
