Find those Easter Eggs at various locations in Muskoka this weekend
The colourful, chocolately goodness of Easter Egg treats is an unmatched childhood (maybe even adulthood) favourite.
Perhaps the best part is hunting them down when hidden in homes and cottages, or outdoors on properties. The most delicious are often the ones that take the most work to find.
In our home, there have been years when Easter Eggs have finally been found, albeit accidentally, in May and even June.
If you don’t want to do one at home, there are a pair of FREE – yes, free! – community events organized for Easter weekend are taking place in Bracebridge and Huntsville.
Saturday, April 8
The Wellington Street Pentecostal Church is hosting an Easter Eggstravaganza on their property (38 Wellington Street in Bracebridge) from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
There will be an egg hunt every 30 minutes thousands of eggs on hand. As well, kids can enjoy a bouncy castle obstacle course, popcorn, cotton candy, and facepainting.
Learn more at Easter Eggstravaganza.
Sunday, April 9
The Nutty Chocolatier’s annual Community Easter Egg Hunt at Muskoka Heritage Place – Pioneer Village in Huntsville takes place from 12;15 p.m. to 1 p.m. or when all the eggs are collected (doors open at noon).
This free event, courtesy of The Nutty Chocolatier, is as straight forward as they come: a quick and dirty Easter Egg hunt for children aged 10 and under, with an emphasis on finding a golden egg!
There will be thousands of chocolate eggs hidden around Pioneer Village, with kids being split into age groups, and those who find golden eggs will get a special prize from the Nutty Chocolatier.
Parking available at 88 Brunel Road, then head toward the white and silver bell tower at the Heritage Place.
Bring your happy and excited children along with a bag or pail for eggs, plus be sure to dress according to weather conditions.
Do not bring pets, although registered service animals are welcome.
Parents note that this age-geared event is about the kids finding the eggs; leave your egg-hunting desires at home and enjoy the spectacle of it all.
