With the Easter long weekend about to begin, there’s lots to look forward to. First and foremost, the chocolate of course, but also the time spent with family! There’s also something that combines both of these things that makes Easter weekend so special: Easter egg hunts! A classic tradition for Easter weekend, an egg hunt is an exciting activity for kids to take part in and for parents to enjoy. There are lots of places around the GTA where Easter egg hunts and days of springtime family fun are being hosted. Here’s a rundown of some hunts taking place close by.

Taking place April 14th – 16th, the 16th annual Easterfest will be hosted at Downey’s Farm from 10am-5pm each day. Families can look forward to wagon rides, baby farm animals, a magic show, a puppet show, Easter crafts, as well as their famous Easter Egg Scramble. Colourful plastic eggs are laid out on the field, children run and collect as many as they can, and then later trade them in for an Easter bag of treats. A fun day for all!
