In like a lion, out like a lamb.
March has a lot going on this year, with Spring Break (mid-March), St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th), the start of a new season (March 20th), the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival (March 24th), and Easter (the weekend of the 25th) all occurring over the next few weeks. Throw Daylight Savings Time (starting on March 13th) and mixed weather into it and it all adds up to a busy month, especially for families.
We’ve gathered some details on family friendly March events in Kitsilano that your kids won’t want to miss, including Spring Break ideas and an Easter egg hunt. Sign up soon though as spaces are limited.
