Spending any holiday away from home is an adjustment, but if you’re planning on visiting Ottawa this weekend, you’re in for a treat (literally.) With Easter egg hunts, maple syrup, and bagel deliciousness from Kettleman’s Bagel Co., there’s no end to the family fun you can experience.
Easter Fun in Ottawa
- Canada Agriculture and Food Museum- From Good Friday through Easter Monday, children of all ages can come and enjoy the open barns and celebrate spring’s arrival. You can see the newborn lambs, rabbits, and chicks up close, and your little ones can participate in the Easter egg hunt or the ‘signs of spring’ hunt throughout the barns.
- The Diefenbunker- Always wanted to visit the Diefenbunker? April 19th, your entire family can enjoy this one-of-a-kind experience with a massive Easter egg hunt covering 100,000 square feet.
- Cumberland Heritage Village Museum- Did you know that the Cumberland Museum has their very own Easter Bunny? He comes out once a year to celebrate spring and hide Easter eggs throughout the museum for children to enjoy. Children can hunt for eggs, visit the petting zoo, have fun with special projects, and learn about the importance of agriculture at the same time. They can also take part in dyeing their very own Easter eggs.
- Fulton’s Pancake House and Sugar Bash- Want to experience a fun day for the whole family? Fulton’s Sugar Bash features a number of spring activities, like horse-drawn rides, hiking trails, campfire tales, and tapping pure maple syrup from a backyard maple tree.
- Stanley’s Ole Maple Lane Farm- Both kids and adults will have fun at this farm meeting the Easter Bunny and searching for his lost eggs. Children will be able to search through the Sugarbush for eggs, then place them all in the giant Easter basket. They’ll then have the opportunity to head back to the barn to visit with all the new baby animals that have been born this spring.
What Else Can You do?
While Easter egg hunts are fun, there’s plenty more available to you this weekend in Ottawa. There are plenty of shops, museums, and sites open with special events, and getting to them won’t cost you an arm and a leg, since Ottawa busses will be offering a $7.85 DayPass to families with up to six people on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
As always, Kettleman’s Bagel Co. will be open for your breakfast, lunch, or dinner needs. Our Ottawa catering company can help you experience bagels like never before either in-house or your menu choice can be delivered directly to your home or hotel. Planning on throwing your own Easter egg hunt? We can help reduce your burden as the host and cater the event for you. You’ll have the opportunity to choose from any of our delicious menu selections for your guests to enjoy, but you won’t have to spend your entire weekend slaving over the meal in the kitchen. It’ll be delivered right to your door.
No matter what you’re planning for this weekend, we at Kettleman’s Bagel Co. want to wish you a very happy Easter.
