6. Hunt for Easter chicks in Clovelly

Following on from Lentsherd on Shrove Tuesday, which sees children race down the cobbles at Clovelly, dragging clattering tin cans to chase away bad spirits and drive the devil into the sea, Easter is a more tranquil affair. Children search the high street with the aid of a village map to find Easter chicks with prizes up for grabs.
