Easter Bunny comes to Creemore March 31
The Easter Bunny is visiting Creemore next weekend.
Darci-que and Emily Fischl have revived an old tradition of holding Easter festivities in the village.
The bunny will be arriving on Mill Street at 10 a.m. and the egg hunt at the Horticultural Park is at noon. More than 300 eggs filled with treats and prizes donated by downtown businesses will be hidden in the park.
The eggs will contain a ticket for a prize that can be claimed at one of the participating businesses, each of which will have balloons outside.
“We are overwhelmed with excitement that the business community has come together. We appreciate everyone’s support,” said Fischl of the BIA funded event.
She and darci-que are setting up crafts at Bunny Headquarters in the vacant retail space beside their store, Hillview Cellar Winery, at 151 Mill St. From 10 a.m. until noon and again after the egg hunt, children are invited to take part in crafts and activities, and decorate an Easter bonnet or bowtie to wear in a mini parade, led by the Easter Bunny at about 1:30 p.m.
Watch for an Easter colouring sheet by darci-que in next week’s Creemore Echo. Children are encouraged to bring their finished picture to bunny headquarters during the festivities.
The day begins with an Easter market at Station on the Green from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Also that day, Clearview Community Church is holding an Easter egg hunt at Mad River Park, beginning at 11 a.m. It is free to youth ages 10 and under. Hotdogs and drinks will be served.
On Good Friday, March 30, Horning’s Mills Community Hall is holding its annual Easter event, with a pancake breakfast beginning at 9 a.m. and an egg hunt at 10 a.m. The cost is $5 for adults, and children eat for free.
