The Easter Bunny did it right! Our First Easter Egg Hunt was a Success!

Posted: April 12, 2012 in Bunker Kids!, Events, Local Community, Public Programs, Visitors Services

On Saturday April 7th, we hosted our first underground Easter Egg Hunt at the Diefenbunker and it was a huge success! Over 350 visitors came through the museum. It was so busy that the Easter Bunny had to come back and hide more eggs because we ran out!

Here is what one Mom had to say,

We had a wonderful time today…what a great way to introduce history to kids!”

We would like to extend our thanks to Julie Oliver from the Ottawa Citizen for featuring our Easter Egg Hunt on the front page of the Life section in Sunday`s paper (photo featured to the right).

Julie also interviewed Heather Montgomery, Education and Volunteer Manager, and posted a great video on the Ottawa Citizen website.

Special thanks to everyone who helped us promote our event. Including: Ottawa Kiosk, Saving in Ottawa, Savvy Mom and more!

After chatting with the Easter Bunny, he agreed that next year he will come back for Sunday too!

Guess what?! You don’t have to wait a full year to come back. We have engaging events planned for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Canada Day. Visit our website for more details >>
