The members of the Old Town Kemptville BIA Events Committee are pleased to announce the return of the Easter Bunny Hop to Downtown Kemptville Saturday, April 13 from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm. Children of all ages are invited to enjoy the hospitality of the business members of the Old Town Kemptville BIA. Each participating business will be providing Easter treats to each child who comes to their doors.

There will also be other activities, special offers and a special family Easter basket draw with used treasure (treat) maps for the draw available at the North Grenville Public Library and Exit Realty By Design. There’s also a scavenger hunt courtesy of the Kemptville Youth Centre and the Municipality of North Grenville Parks, Recreation and Culture department. There are also rumours that the Easter Bunny may make an appearance during the festivities for photos at Exit Realty By Design.

This will be the largest number of participating businesses ever for this event in Downtown Kemptville. We want to thank all the volunteers, businesses, organizations and individuals who have contributed to helping to make this a very special Easter celebration. We hope to see everyone on Saturday.
