Looking for something fun to do with your family this Easter? I have rounded up some of the fun family friendly Easter weekend activities in the London, Ontario area for you here! UPDATED FOR 2019!
Please note: I included a few events that are not actually being held on Easter weekend but they are Easter themed and sound like fun so I added them anyway. Just take note of the dates on each listing.
The annual Easter Egg Hunt for Dogs, presented by National Service Dogs (NSD), takes place on Good Friday, April 19th at the Plunkett Estate, 9282 Elviage Drive. Registration 10am, Hunt begins at 11am.
Each year, thousands of plastic eggs are filled with dog treats and hidden over a defined area of a local park. Each egg contains a Milk-Bone treat and a sticker, representing a chance to win one of hundreds of great prizes. Registrants receive two egg cartons, giving them the opportunity to collect up to 24 eggs. Participants who collect donations on NSD’s behalf are eligible to collect more eggs based on the dollar value of the donations they received.
