With Easter long weekend rapidly approaching (YAY for some extra family days!), I thought I would do a quick roundup of some of the events going on around the North Shore for families to partake in. There are many events to check out this weekend, and I want to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the fun!

The Lions Club will be hosting an event at Heywood Park in North Vancouver from 10:30am to 12:30pm. An Easter Egg Hunt will begin at 10:30am sharp. Kids will also get to meet the Easter bunny! Additionally, there will be a bouncy castle, a juggler, a balloon lady and face painting! Sounds perfect for kids of all ages.
Here is a map of how to get to Heywood Park if you are not familiar with the area: http://maps.google.com/maps?daddr=2099+Hamilton+Ave,+North+Vancouver,+BC,+Canada&geocode=&dirflg=&saddr=&f=d&hl=en&sll=49.330856,-123.097773&sspn=0.012781,0.028925&ie=UTF8&z=16
