Easter Eggstravaganza is an annual event that has been growing every year in the Annapolis Valley. It is one of the first festivals held in the spring after the long winter. Everyone is ready to get outside and get together with friends and neighbors.

Several towns and communities in the valley have started holding events like Easter egg hunts for the children, but some have added even more events to make it a full day celebration. Annapolis Royal has made this an annual event that has grown each year and every year.

So what can you expect at Easter Eggstravaganza?

Well like I mentioned several communities hold easter egg hunts like Berwick, who hold their annual egg hunt at the Centennial Park by the gazebo. Middleton also holds an annual Easter egg hunt at Rotary Park. The Life Centre at Middleton Baptist Church also holds a movie or video for the children with free popcorn and drinks.
