Easter Events for Families in Vancouver This Weekend
We’ve got three full days to revel in the joy of Easter. Here are our picks for the very best family-friendly Easter events happening in Vancouver this long weekend.
Stanley Park Easter Train: March 29-April 2 in Stanley Park
A city classic. Ride the train, meet the bunny himself, make some Easter crafts, play some games, have your face painted (extra fee) and enjoy an Easter egg hunt….BYOB (bring your own basket, of course!) Note that this is a popular event so purchase your ticket ASAP to avoid disappointment. Tickets for the egg hunt and other carnival activities are available onsite.
