Hopping into the downtown on Saturday April 15th 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 wouldnt 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."
The day begins at 10 am at the Collingwood Museum / Station - bring a bag and collect the eggs hidden by the Easter Bunny on the grounds. This event 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. Following the hunt the Journey Community Church will also be hosting a free Children's Easter movie - VeggieTales "An Easter Carol" - at the Gayety Theatre. The movie starts at 11 am, complete with free popcorn for all, but please note that seating is limited to the first 300.
The fun doesn't end then - starting at 11am, join us at the Children's Activity Centre, in front of Collingwood's Town Hall. There will be free face painting, a chance to take home a fun balloon creation and the Collingwood Healthy Kids Community Challenge activity station. 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! Return the form for your chance to win a great prize.
