After a long, dreary March, nothing could be more exciting than the upcomng Easter Long weekend! If you're more excited about the prospect of searching for chocolate eggs rather than an excuse to sleep in, there are plenty of organized egg hunts happening around the city. Unfortunately, most of these egg hunts have an age limit of 10 and below. But if you have a kid, you can always live vicariously through their frantic attempts to locate the eggs hidden amongst the garden.
If you are hoping to get into the Easter spirit this weekend, here are some events to give you some ideas:
VanDusen Botanical Garden A-Maze-ing Egg Hunt. Tickets sell out quickly so make sure you grab a few ahead of time.

Easter at FlyOver Canada. The Easter bunny will be making a special appearance here, to lead young aviators as they search for chocolate eggs.
