Easter at the Bunker 2023

April 7, 2023, 10:00 am3:00 pm

Pudge poses in front of cardboard cut-outs of mushrooms while attending the Diefenbunker's "Easter at the Bunker" event.

Spring has sprung! Hop on over to the Diefenbunker to see what the Easter Bunny has left behind for you to find at our annual spring event.

You’re invited to explore the bunker as you search for signs of spring and pick up some small treats along the way. Decorate a butterfly or an egg at our craft station, plant some seeds to take home with you, and participate in a scavenger hunt for camouflaged eggs and flowers.

Join us underground for some springtime family fun. We’re egg-cited to see you!
