My Other Half (a lawyer), tells me that you should park the car close to their premises (legally, on the public highway), with notices in the windows outling the problems you've had.
Be entirely truthful & objective, don't let your emotions run wild/or be offensive, and this will hit the garage where it hurts, and get you a result.
Easter weekend may just be the 'high-profile' event to gain you maximum publicity.
Don't get mad, get even.
Think it through. If the car happens to get damaged whilst parked your insurers may take a different view and should it get "accidently" damaged after all using your vehicle as a means of protest may not be viewed as legitimate use.
There is a load of legislation which the customer can use in this situation which you should consider first and foremost. Getting angry and trying to get even may make you feel better in the short-term but in all honestly it very unlikely to resolve the situation. Making the dealer angry may just protract the situation when when in fact you need a speedy resolution.
A good lawyer may recommend you get an independent legal view of the situation - ideally someone who isn't personally involved.
