Bunnies abound for Langley museum event

Centennial Museum hosting a second annual Easter weekend celebration.

Those in the basket for some egg-citement this Easter weekend need to hunt no further than the Langley Centennial Museum’s second annual Bunnies and Baskets event.

Activities will include an Easter egg hunt in the History Gallery (find all that Peter Rabbit has hidden?) and a variety of arts and crafts projects that families can create and build together, including Easter baskets, rabbit masks, and egg painting and dyeing.

“Last year was the very first year the museum hosted this event and it was a huge success,” said Township Arts and Culture programmer Maggie Lukban. “The petting zoo was a popular attraction and families enjoyed having various activities they could complete at their own pace.”

Live, pet-able bunnies will be on hand, as well as relay races and even an appearance from the big rabbit himself, the Easter Bunny.

The event takes place at 9135 King St. in Fort Langley on March 26 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., and then again from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. It costs $10 for a family of four. Last year’s event sold out quickly, so those interested are encouraged to register early.

To register for this year’s Bunnies and Baskets, or for information regarding any other program or event the museum offers, visit or call 604-532-3536.
