Easter Fun in Downtown Collingwood

Hopping into the downtown on Saturday March 26th will be the Easter Bunny himself!  It is with great pleasure that Downtown announces Mr. E. Bunny has again made room in his busy schedule to visit Downtown Collingwood, “It’s a tradition I wouldn’t miss!  I love the early hunt for eggs at the Station grounds and the unique way Downtown lets me hide all my eggs in the business windows. The children bring their Moms and Dads to help find and count them, so this makes the day truly a family adventure.”

Get an early start to the day at the Station….  Beginning at 10 a.m…. bring a bag and collect the eggs hidden by the Easter Bunny on the grounds.  The fun will continue until 11 a.m. and is for children 10 and under only, and they must bring an adult with them to join the fun.  This part of the day is hosted by the Journey Community Church and there will be lots of activities to keep the little ones busy while they wait for their turn to join the hunt. 

The fun doesn’t end then… starting at 11a.m., join us at the Children’s Activity Centre, in front of Collingwood’s Town Hall.  There will be free face painting and a chance to take home a fun balloon creation.  You can pick up your egg counting entry form, then head out and count the eggs that the Easter Bunny has hidden in all the business windows throughout downtown. Bring along your parents for help, as accuracy counts!  While you are counting the eggs, look at all the great spring window displays and choose your favourite!  Return the form for your chance to win a great prize. 

As part of the Downtown Easter celebration, Collingwood Healthy Kids Community Challenge will be hosting a StoryWalk.  Kids can enjoy the bestselling book The Night Before Easterwritten by Natasha Wing as they move throughout downtown, collecting stickers and surprises along the way. StoryWalk will begin at the Children’s Centre in front of Town Hall.

Come dressed for the weather and stay for this Spring filled day of activities. Don’t forget your camera so you can have your photo taken with the Easter Bunny.

While you’re visiting Downtown, drop into the shops as the new spring clothing, accessories and home decor fashions have arrived.  Check out and see what’s new; from Easter Bonnets to Easter dinner, the businesses and shops have everything you will need for this holiday and the rest of Spring.

Stay for a cup of tea or coffee or a great lunch at one of our outstanding restaurants.  Make Downtown Collingwood your destination for everything Easter!
