There are a few things to be hoppy about this April, as pair of popular Niagara-on-the-Lake Easter gatherings return after a two-year hiatus.
The Niagara Nursery School will hold its Bunny Trail event and the NOTL Kinsmen will hold the Kinsmen Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 16.
Ken Slingerland, chair of the hunt and past-president of NOTL Kinsmen, said the events have been coinciding for a long time.
“We have run them on the same day and at the same place for about 20 years,” he said.
“Our event starts at 10 a.m. Saturday morning and they run theirs immediately afterwards.”
Candice Penny, executive director of the nursery school, said there are lots of fun activities planned for kids after the hunt, including balloon twisting with JBean Entertainment, tractor rides provided by Huebel Grapes Estates, and some goats and a donkey from Fox Den Goat Yoga.
Penny said it is a relief to get back to community events.
“We’re just thrilled. We are so excited,” she said.
She said all public health guidelines regarding COVID will be followed and anyone who wants to wear a mask is encouraged to do so.
