Long weekends are often time to sit back, relax and put your feet up. Stores close, and family gathers. This Easter, you may be gathering with your family, but you likely are also itching to get out and enjoy what spring has to offer! We are here to help by outlining not what’s open this weekend, but what the people of Red Deer are getting up to for Easter – and where you can join in!
Easter Family Night
April 12 from 6 to 8pm @ Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum
No need to wait for the weekend! On Wednesday, the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum has a myriad of Easter activities, including an Egg Hunt starting at 6:20 sharp! This event also includes full access to the entire museum, so if you’ve never been now is your chance to explore the history of sports as well as celebrate the season. Best part – it’s only $10 per family of 6!
Visit their website for more details.
Easter at the Ranch
April 14, 15 and 16 @ Heritage Ranch in Red Deer
There’s always something happening at the Heritage Ranch. Join them for Easter by booking your spot at either the Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt or a Daytime Easter Egg hunt. Though searching at night brings a different element to your average egg hunt, if you visit during the day you can also enjoy a wagon ride, and your hot dogs and chocolate are included with your reservation.
To enjoy either of these great hunts, book online now!
Sheraton Hotel Easter Celebration
April 16 from 10am to 2pm @ Sheraton Red Deer Hotel
Not up to hosting dinner this year? No worries, the Sheraton has you covered. Featuring a colouring contest, the Easter bunny and an easter egg hunt, the hotel’s celebration will not be short of fun and food. Two Easter Brunches, one for families and one for adults only, will include cookies, cupcakes, dessert and your fair share of Easter chocolate.
Book your reservation on the Sheraton website.
April 16 from 1 to 4pm @ Kerry Wood Nature Centre
For a small donation of $3 per individual or $10 per family, you can enjoy an afternoon of activities, prizes, crafts and the Nature Centre’s famous egg hunt! No need to reserve in advance, this event is drop-in and features multiple egg hunt times.

Easter is HOPpin’ at the MAG!
