The Easter holiday is quickly approaching, and it is time to start thinking about how you are going to spend the weekend. Whether you are wanting to pack it full of Easter events, or simply take in an egg hunt and breakfast, Collingwood has lots going on that weekend and there is sure to be something that gets you excited. Check out these events to get you started on making your plans:
Blue Mountain Easter in the Village
While the ski season may be starting to wind down, there is still a lot of fun to be had at Blue Mountain Village on Easter Weekend! Celebrating Easter in the Village, start on Friday with an Easter egg scavenger hunt, horse and wagon rides, toffee on the snow, and a drumming show. These events continue on Saturday – in addition to groove dancing in the afternoon – while Sunday starts out with Easter brunch. The Mountain Adventure Show is happening in the village all weekend, and if you’re lucky, you might even get to ski with the Easter Bunny!
Egg Hunting and Breakfast
Easter just wouldn’t be the same without a chance to go on a hunt for some eggs. A favourite Easter morning activity, the Collingwood Downtown Great Easter Egg Hunt will take place on Saturday March 31st, from 10-11 am, with children’s activities to follow until 3pm. And don’t worry, mom and dad, there is an egg hunt for you too! Held at the Georgian Hills Vineyards, this hunt starts at 11am and goes until they’re gone! Get outside and hunt through the vineyard for some hidden eggs, which might result in getting you some exciting prizes (that may or may not include wine, chocolate, and cheeses!). Before your hunt, don’t forget to take advantage of a special Easter breakfast and enjoy all you can eat pancakes, French toast, ham, and sausage at Beaver Valley Arena.
Weekend Shows and Events
In addition to the regular Easter egg hunts, a chance to hang out with the Easter bunny, and lots of delicious chocolate, there are a few other weekend events happening that you can take advantage of to round out your weekend. The Mountain Adventure Show is happening in the Blue Mountain Village Conference Center, on Sunday April 1st from 10am-6pm. This show is a chance for you to get a head start on your summer planning, featuring information on wellness programs, land and water activities, and camps for the kids that will be happening during the summer months. If mountain adventure isn’t quite your thing, how about curling? The Blue Mountains Curling Centre is having an open curling session for you to come try curling at the arena. Taking place Thursday March 29 to Saturday, March 31, visit the website to check out the schedule and see when you can get on the ice!
With the long weekend not too far away, start making plans for how you would like to spend your Easter in Collingwood. There is a lot to do, lots of fun to find, and of course, lots of chocolate to be eaten!
