Hop into the Easter weekend with one of these fun kids activities! There are things happening all over the city, so all you have to do is pick an area, and you’re bound to find an easter egg hunt / activity going on. If you need a little help, we’ve got a list of 5 activities going on this Easter long weekend:
1. Easter Parade – The Beaches
There may not be any eggs to hunt, but the annual Beaches Lions Club Easter Parade is hopping with fun. This parade brings a ton of music and Easter entertainment to Queen Street East every spring! This year the parade grand marshals will be Olympic swimming medalist (and Beach resident!) Penny Oleksiak, Paralympians Victoria Nolan and Claudia Brown. For anyone looking to set a new PB in front of the Easter Bunny, there will also be an Easter fun run taking place before the parade. This free parade is taking place Sunday, April 16th at 2pm.
2. Centre Island Easter EGGstravaganza
Hop on the ferry and make your way to Toronto’s largest Easter egg hunt, EGGstravaganza. Join the Easter Bunny for a guaranteed day of fun at Centreville Amusement Park and Far Enough Farm. Get your face painted, feed farm animals and – of course – take part in the Easter egg hunt. Brightly coloured eggs will be hidden throughout Centreville and Far Enough Farm and can be redeemed for prizes. As a bonus, this event is going on all weekend – April 14th – 16th from 11am – 4pm.
3. High Park Easter Egg Hunt
This Easter egg hunt is a great option for those who don’t know their Easter schedule yet. There is a hunt happening every 30 minutes, so there’s bound to be a time that will work for you & the kids. The annual Easter Egg Hunt in High Park takes place on the grounds of the Colborne Lodge Museum. A children’s outdoor egg hunt is scheduled every 30 minutes, beginning at 11 a.m., with the last hunt starting at 3 p.m. A host of additional activities are planned, including bunny-themed crafts, egg dyeing, face painting, and exploring Colborne Lodge.
4. Chocolate Tour
Easter is the time for eating chocolate, so what better way to celebrate than with a chocolate tour around Toronto? This walking tour includes samples and includes a crash course in chocolate history, as well as a chocolate making demonstration by an award winning chocolatier. This event takes place on Saturday April 15th. Meeting place is outside of 443 King Street West.
5. Easter Brunch
Enjoy the splendour of Casa Loma this Easter Sunday, April 16th with a family brunch! The cost of brunch includes admission to the castle, so plan on fuelling up in the morning and then taking a tour of the castle after brunch. This event is suitable for all ages, but does require a reservation if you plan on attending!

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter!
