As spring emerges, Easter is just around the corner and we are so excited to celebrate this year. With Easter comes warmer weather, family gatherings and lots of delicious treats.
From scavenger hunts to a delicious Easter meal, we have created a list of ways you can celebrate Easter and spring this year.
What to do
The Augmented Reality Spring Hunt
Take Easter egg hunting to a whole new level with a virtual scavenger hunt that’s fun for all ages. From April 1-30, explore the streets of Downtown Oakville on an Augmented Reality Spring Hunt to find five characters hiding in secret locations Downtown.
Don't forget to tag us on social using #dtoakville. If you (or your kids) collect all five characters, you have a chance to win $1,000 to spend Downtown. To start your adventure visit scan the QR code on display at the various sidewalk decals Downtown. You can also visit DTOakvillehunt.ca
What better way to celebrate spring and Easter than with a patio hop? Patio openings begin April 16 and if weather permits why not check out the many patios located in Downtown Oakville.
Where to eat
If you aren’t in the mood to host a family lunch or dinner this Easter, make a reservation at River 16 Restaurant and Lounge located at 234 Lakeshore Rd. New to Downtown Oakville, River 16 has a ton of great options on the menu with an emphasis on natural, sustainable, and ethically sourced food from local farms and producers.
Rain or shine, ice cream is always a welcome addition in our books – but there’s something about ice cream on a warm day that makes it just a little bit more special. Visit La Diperie located at 187 Lakeshore Rd for the perfect afternoon or evening snack. They also offer a selection of vegan options so that everyone can enjoy a sweet treat!

In May, Boa Boutique is moving just down the road to 125 Lakeshore Rd.
