Searching for something fun to do with the kids this Easter?

I was in the same boat, until I made this happy discovery; North Vancouver boasts a great range of free or very affordable events and activities to enjoy. There seems to be a boundless list of reasons why North Vancouver is the perfect place to live, particularly for families. Of course, it’s beautiful - chock full of stunning scenery and never-ending nature, but there’s also a vibrant, palpable sense of community and culture in this city of ours, and never a shortage of inspiring things for citizens to do. So it comes as no surprise that organizations across North Vancouver have pulled out all the stops to offer a wide range of community-enriching Easter activities. 

Here are just a few of the events worth checking out. Hop to it!

Heywood Park Easter Egg Hunt

When: Saturday, April 15th, 10:30am sharp
Where: Heywood Park, 1633 MacKay Avenue, North Vancouver
Cost: FREE
The details: Watch the kids delight in this truly egg-cellent classic outdoor Easter egg hunt! There will be a variety of activities and the very social Easter Bunny will make an appearance. WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. Best suited for kids 9 and under.
How to hop to it: Show up dressed for the weather and bring your best Easter basket!

Easter in Lynn Valley Village 

When: Saturday, April 15th, 1-3 pm
Where: Lynn Valley Village Plaza, 1233 - 1277 Lynn Valley Rd, North Vancouver,
Cost: FREE
The details: After the smashing success of 2016’s first run, this fun community event is back for round two! Expect a scavenger hunt - no eggs or candy, which is good news for those with allergies or food sensitivities. Instead of edible finds, participants will obtain a “Passport” which they will then present to each merchant in the plaza in exchange for a stamp. At the end of the hunt, children will submit their passports and receive their treasure! There will be two craft stations, various activities, and, once again, (say it with me now), a visit from the busybody Easter Bunny! He sure is getting around this year!
How to hop to it: Show up with a smile.
