Children’s entertainers and the Easter bunny himself drew hundreds of children to the shopping drag for face painting, balloon animals, farmyard animals and other novelties. 

Destination Wollongong marketing manager Tabitha Galvin said the activities were aimed at enlivening the city centre during the holidays.

‘‘It’s always been about making the city centre an entertainment precinct that’s inviting to families,’’ she said.
