Nothing says Easter like a classic egg hunt.

Join in on the North York Easter Egg Hunt this April 3-5 at Gym-O-Gym.  There are a number of hunts happening throughout the weekend, including a glow in the dark Easter egg hunt for kids aged five and up. Admission to the event includes a slice of pizza, juice box, egg hunt, prizes and games for the little ones. Make sure to bring your own basket as eggs will be collected by kids and then traded in for chocolate and other prizes. The North York Easter Egg Hunt is a 45-minute transit ride from Timbercreek’s 100 Parkway Forest Community.

Easter in the Kingsway

During the Easter long weekend come down to the bustling Kingsway district where there will be plenty of Easter fun for the whole family. Easter bunnies will be giving away free chocolates, treats and eggs. There will also be a bouncy castle, crafts, live music, clowns, magicians, face painters and more.
