Easter events to hop to this weekend

The Surrey Museum hosts its Easter Fair, a local winery invites you to wander through the vineyard and behold the supreme egg hunt.

Meet the ‘real’ Easter bunny

Rabbit agility demonstrations, dancing dogs, a menagerie of rescue critters, and an Easter egg hunt are some of the fun activities planned for the Surrey Museum’s Easter Fair.

The April 4, all-ages event is a chance for the whole family to learn more about local wildlife and rescue animals.

The annual fair began in 2007 as a way of educating the public on responsible animal care and adoption – a chance to meet the ‘real’ Easter bunny and friends – and grew from there.

Every Easter, adopted rabbits find themselves cast off or neglected as new owners discover rabbits require as much care as other pets.

From 1 to 4 p.m., meet with local animal rescue groups, and get up close and personal with rescue animals, from rabbits to cats and from dogs to birds.

Animal rescue groups include AireCanada Airedale Rescue, T&T Shar-pei Rescue, BC Exotic Bird Society, Surrey BC SPCA Education and Adoption Centre, Chihuahua Club of B.C., Vancouver Rabbit Rescue, and TLC Pet Adoptions.

Activities range from spring crafts to an Easter egg hunt in the exhibit gallery.

Special guests include the Vancouver Rabbit Agility Club  will be showing off their athletic bunnies, at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m, on the museum’s plaza (weather permitting), and Alison and George the Dancing Dog, performing at 1:30 p.m.

The Surrey Museum is located at 17710 56A Avenue. It’s open Tuesdays to Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed Sundays, Mondays and statutory holidays. Admission is sponsored by the Friends of the Surrey Museum and Archives Society.
