The Best of Easter.

Easter represents the first long weekend of the spring season with most people having Good Friday off work and school being closed on Easter Monday. For those celebrating Easter, it’s a great time of year to set traditions and a chance to connect with your family. For many, this involves specific meals at a brunch or dinner, Easter egg hunts in your backyard or around the house and baskets of chocolates for the kiddies. After all, the Easter Bunny has been hard at work preparing all winter long.

From egg hunts to parade watching, we list some of the best family-friendly events going on around our communities across the GTA over Easter weekend. Get your baskets ready and hop on over to one of these events for bunnyfulls of fun!
