What’s Hoppening York Region?

This Easter long weekend, spoil your little bunnies by checking out some of York Region’s fantastic line-up of Easter egg hunts and visits with the famous Easter Bunny. With so many options of fun things to do across the Region, the only thing you need to worry about is which festivities you’ll go to first. Don’t sweat hiding the chocolates this year mom and dad, we’ve got you covered.
