3) Downtown Brampton Easter Egg Hunt
Here’s another fun thing you can do on Saturday March 31 - look for Easter eggs in downtown Brampton, hosted by the Downtown Brampton BIA! The big event will run from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and it'll take place starting in Vivian Lane in downtown Brampton.
“To join the hunt, you must find the hidden egg in the window and let the business owner know where it is,” says the BIA. “You will receive a treat for finding the egg.”
According to the BIA, there will definitely be an egg hunt (of course), treat bag decorating, the chance to collect treats and win prizes, a photobooth, and more. Click here for more details!
