Celebrating Easter in Burlington  

March 26, 2024

A little birdie told us that the Easter Bunny is coming our way! Check out how to schedule a sighting and make the most of your Easter in Burlington.  

Hoppin’ with the Easter Bunny  

Smile for the camera! The Easter Bunny is hoppin’ into town and now is your opportunity to snap a picture with our famous visitor. First in his itinerary is a stop at Burlington Centre where he will host picture time throughout March. Explore the Burlington Centre website to view the full schedule including opportunities to get a picture with the whole family – furry friends included.  

For two days only, the Easter Bunny will also be making a stop at the Joseph Brant Museum. Join in on the Easter egg hunt across the exhibitions while learning more about sounds, and the history of Burlington and discover STEAM projects hands-on. Take a break with some hot chocolate and explore the mini-maker market before the big event; a visit with the Easter Bunny. Henry’s will be on-site for a professional photoshoot; however, parents are welcome to take pictures with their cameras as well.  

Gathering Around the Table  

Skip the messy kitchen and savour your time and food around the table with loved ones! Familia Fine Foods is offering a take-out feast featuring salmon wellington, carrot and butternut squash soup, and key lime pie for a sweet ending to the meal. Make sure you order by March 26 to enjoy this meal on Easter Sunday. You can also explore the boxed brunch, quiche and pastry options through Saving Thyme (order by March 25) giving you plenty of reasons to focus on family over what is cooking in the kitchen.  

Interested in Good Friday fish and chips? Gator Ted’s will be offering a special menu including fish tacos, clam chowder and a haddock and fish and chips plate on March 29th. Both BLK SWAN locations are also offering a fish and chip special accompanied by live music starting at 8 p.m.. 

The Sweetest Experience  

For those with a sweet tooth maple syrup festivals continue throughout the long weekend. Head to Bronte Creek Provincial Park for a pancake breakfast and easter weekend hike or explore Mapletown at Mountsberg Conservation Area to learn more about how sap is collected from maple trees and converted into sweet, sticky syrup. Continue your exploration with a stop at Crawford Lake Conservation Area for Sweat Water Season and learn about the indigenous origins of maple sugaring while enjoying the fresh air by the fireside lounge.
