For many Easter is a religious time while for others Easter is a Spring holiday that gives children a little break from school as they anticipate the Easter Bunny. Burlington families have lots to look forward to this year. Easter Weekend begins on Good Friday, April 18th and continues until Easter Monday, April 21st though many parents will need return to work on Monday. Children at both the Halton District School Board and Halton Catholic District School Board will return to classes on Tuesday April 22nd.
Easter weekend, and the weeks ahead, are filled with fun for the whole family. Take a look at all the local Easter Egg Hunts, Bunny visits and activities in town!
