Easter Extravaganza 2012

Photos with the Easter Bunny

The Port Moody Station Museum is hosting its 12th annual Easter celebration Sunday, April 8th, 10am-2pm.

The main event is the Easter egg hunt – we hide marbles and kids exchange them for chocolate eggs. But that’s not all! Visitors can also enjoy:

  • performances by magician Dennis Hewson and dog dancing team Joyce Johnstone and Twinkletoes,
  • face painting,
  • carnival games,
  • Easter basket craft with Liz Summerfield,
  • photos with the Easter Bunny (cost is $5),
  • and our bubble zone.

We resupply our hidden marbles and eggs throughout, so no need to rush.

This event is great for young kids with a special area for toddler egg hunting and a baby changing station.

Concession available at the event with coffee, hot dogs, popcorn and drinks.

Make your own Easter Basket!

Admission is $5 per person – available at the door (CASH or CHEQUE ONLY). All proceeds go to support the Port Moody Station Museum charitable society.
