For the week of April 15 – 21, 2019
It’s Easter and there are no shortage of egg hunts and extravaganzas! For something a little outside of the ordinary, families can check out Character Day in Bracebridge and meet all of their favourite popular culture characters. Because grown ups should have fun too, Muskoka Lakes Farm & Winery is inviting you to join in on their Maple Mayhem event happening all weekend long. And depending on your taste in music (and maybe your age), the popular Baby Shark will be performing LIVE at Deerhurst Resort while Papa John will be entertaining patrons at Sawdust City Brewery’s Saloon.
Papa John LIVE at Sawdust City Brewery
Every Saturday night at Sawdust City Brewery there is a great artist taking the stage for some live music. This Saturday, April 20, Papa John will be performing his Mississippi Delta Plantation Juke Jones blues, starting at 8pm. Kick back and relax with a deliciously crafted brew while listening to the sweet sound of Mississippi blues. There is no cover fee to get into the bar, and the beer and atmosphere are top notch.
Easter Egg Hunts
The Easter Bunny will be making his way around Muskoka this weekend, which means there will be lots of egg hunts to attend. The Nutty Chocolatier Annual Community Easter Egg Hunt will be taking place at Muskoka Heritage Place on Sunday, April 21. There will be two Easter egg hunt events at the Play Pit on Monday, April 22 for different age groups. Families can also check out the Easter Extravaganza at Woodchester Villa in Bracebridge. And because even the adults deserve to have a little fun, Muskoka Lakes Farm and Winery will also be hosting their first ever Maple Mayhem, Easter fun for adults.
Character Day at Memorial Park
This Saturday, April 20 from 9am – 12pm at Memorial Park in Bracebridge, bring the whole family out to meet and greet with some of their favorite characters from Muskoka, Characters & Mascots. Expect to meet the Easter Bunny himself and other popular characters like Peppa Pig, Catboy, Mickey Mouse and more! All money raised will go towards Muskoka Dog Rescue. Please bring enough cash to make a minimum of $5 per child, which will cover meeting and taking pictures with each of the special guests.
Muskoka Lakes Farm & Winery Maple Mayhem, Easter Fun for Adults
