The Easter Egg Hunt Downtown Brampton on April 16, 2022 was a community success! As one of the first major events organized by the businesses after pandemic restrictions eased, the area saw over 2500 people visiting from Brampton and beyond. More than 850 children were registered for the event, with hundreds more turning up on the day to join the festivities.
With the support of Polaris Dental, Kennedy Road Church, and Nestle Canada, children had the chance to collect a map of treat locations (participating businesses), meet with the Easter Bunny, dance to music provided by DJ Jonathon Shaw, take a family photo at the photo booth, visit with Brampton Fire firefighters, check out the inside of an ambulance and more!
Over 20 downtown businesses provided free treats to little visitors including: Baci Gifts, RaPizza, Polaris Dental, Lot 25 Restaurant, Hooper’s Pharmacy, AMA Academy of Martial Arts, Stephan’s Furs, Restyle Beauty Boutique, Dolcezza Custom Cakes, Perpetual Bazaar, Flowertown Laundry, Journey Thrift, Roots Community Services, Segovia Coffee Co., Beaux-Arts Brampton, Brampton Denture & Wellness, Dragon World Games, Mi Churros, PAMA, and Pizzanini.
