Hippity-hopping to parks, resorts, and malls near you, the Easter Bunny has made his way to the Great White North and has baskets of eggs and chocolates for the kids.
As the weather returns to liveable normalcy and we all come out of our own hibernation rabbit holes, the perfect springtime activity is going on a wabbit hunt. Here are the top 10 places to spot the Easter Bunny from coast to coast.
Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, AB
Enjoy an elegant Easter brunch in the heart of The Rockies for an Easter celebration at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. The little ones can participate in an egg hunt and the whole family can partake in a myriad of fun activities all day long.
Frontenac Mall, Kingston, ON
For those who live in the Kingston area and are looking for places to spot the Easter Bunny, you may just find him accepting lap-visits and handing out good wishes at Frontenac Mall. The mall will also have interactive displays with live farm animals and a petting zoo. Be sure to check their website for specific bunny-visit times.
Colasanti’s, Kingsville, ON
Colasanti’s provides family fun all year long, but at this time of year, not only can you play their 18-hole indoor mini putt course, take a spin on their rides or bumper cars, and play in their arcade, but you can also spot the Easter Bunny on Friday, April 6th during their annual scavenger hunt.
Upper Canada Mall, Newmarket, ON

Willowbrook Shopping Centre, Langley, BC
If you’ll be in the Langley area for Easter be sure to check out Willowbrook, where a trip to see the bunny could also do some good for the community.
