Countdown To The Long Weekend: Head To The Easter Races!

When you think Easter, you probably think chocolate comas, family get-togethers, and that hoppy, white mythical creature, the Easter Bunny. But this March, you should also associate Easter with one more thing: Easter Cup racing!

We've been talking a lot about how much we love Relaxed Racing recently—from the laid back style, to the awesome events, and the perfect day out on the lawn with your mates—but Easter Cup is probably one of our favourite days in the Relaxed Racing calendar. Not only do we get a whole long weekend off (YAS!), but we also get to enjoy a great day at the races, kicking back and relaxing on the Dilmah Summer Lawn, with a craft beer or cider in hand. C'mon Melbourne weather, you can sneak in a few more of the last days of summer on Saturday 26 March, can't you? Please?!

Crown Golden Ale beer garden including top deck, plus an acoustic act performing live in the Crown Golden Ale beer garden and a gourmet BBQ offering smoked ribs along with delicious offerings from Australia’s finest producers.

If you're a chocolate fiend (ie, everyone in the world), Darrell Lea is also putting on the world's best Easter egg hunt for the fam—and we take no responsibility for the tantrums when you steal a bunch of eggs from your kids... Hey, they owe you. While they're running around in the eternal hunt for a sugar rush in the form of tiny spheres, you can kick back in the Crown Golden Ale pop-up beer garden, where you'll find live music and an incredible BBQ. Smoked ribs and an ice-cold bevvy, anyone?

So this Easter, get into Relaxed Racing—including some great relaxed style—and maybe you'll even find an egg or two on your travels. Shhh, we won't tell the Easter Bunny...
