It’s almost time to Hop into Easter in the Bay of Quinte! The weekend of April 1st (and we’re not foolin’ ya 😉 ), the Easter Bunny will be hopping all over the region and we wanted to let you know about some of the events that are “hoppenning” – ok we’re punned out we promise. Here we go….
Kick off the weekend by loading up at The Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte Bake Sale, held at the Kanhiote Library, 1658 York Road (upper floor) on Friday, March 30, from 9 am – 2 pm. Pies, cookies, tarts, cupcakes and MORE!
Next, your going to want to head to Grills Orchards on Saturday, March 31st for their very first scavenger hunt!
