Easter fun came to the Howgate Shopping Centre at the weekend as all ages got in the holiday mood.

A host of free events on Friday and Saturday brought people into the Falkirk mall to join in the fun.

There to sure everyone joined in were Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter and the Easter Bunny.

But there were also some real live animals in the popular Spring petting zoo, courtesy of The Dingley Dell Pets, including chicks and giant rabbits.

Youngsters could take part in the Easter crafts, courtesy of the Ochil Crafts Association members, as well as decorate their eggs before rolling them down the make-shift hill.

The fun continues over the Easter school holidays with a free Enjoy-a-Ball holiday club in the Community Hub. Suitable for children aged three to nine years, it will be held on April 6, 7, 13 and 14 from 1.30-3.30pm.
