Easter Egg Hunts around the city of Halifax

Where to find Easter Egg Hunts this upcoming weekend

With Easter weekend around the corner, it's that time of year for Easter festivities including Easter Egg hunts. My oldest son is almost three years old and we haven't taken him to an Easter egg hunt but this year we'll let him experience one of the hunts around the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia. 

Here's the list of egg hunts around the city that I've been able to find. If I'm missing any, send me a tweet @DadDontLie and I'll add it to the list.

There will be soccer balls, frisbees and other outdoor toys but please feel welcome to bring any others to enjoy the day.
