The long Easter weekend approaches. If you’re looking for an Easter egg hunt, or more of a big day out, we’ve collected a few eggcelent and eggciting Easter events happening around Vancouver. And … that’s no yolk.

Egg-citing Easter events around Vancouver

Vancouver Aquarium

Aquarium visitors can take a crack at the third annual Easter Scavenger Hunt on Easter weekend. Many creatures hatch their young in fascinating ways from sitting on eggs to scattering them about to laying them in ‘purses’. Through a  self-guided hunt, families will learn some eggs-traordinary animal stories then use this knowledge to solve clues on the scavenger hunt form. Finishers receive one of four prizes.
