What’s Happening in the Tri Cities: Easter, Earth Day and Extremely Large Lagomorphs

Easter Egg Hunt

My advice this week is enjoy the chocolate but don’t overdo it.
Likewise the bunnies and the eggs.
Moderation is key.

What: Easter Extravaganza
When:  Sunday, April 20 from 10:00am – 2:00pm
Where: Port Moody Station Museum, 2734 Murray Street (map)
The skinny: Remember that bunny I talked about? Well, there’s a really large version(?) of it appearing at the station museum egg hunt. But it isn’t an egg hunt – find as many marbles as you can in the museum grounds and then swap them for chocolate. And it’s good chocolate. Face painting for those who don’t think eating chocolate is a full contact sport. $5 admission per egg hunter. This is a popular event – marbles are replenished throughout the day but parking is a bummer! Think: walking feet.
