Easter weekend 2022: What’s open and closed in Guelph

The Easter Bunny is on the way, meaning many will soon get to enjoy some time with family and friends while perhaps chomping some yummy chocolate and more.

And while plenty will be closed in Guelph on the Easter long weekend, there is still lots to do. Among events is the Easter Egg Hunt For Dogs on Good Friday. The National Service Dogs charity event takes place at Centennial Park. Check out information here.

Also, the Guelph Storm is at home a couple of times in Ontario Hockey League action at the Sleeman Centre. For more on that, see below.

For fans of warm spring sunshine, it might not be an entirely eggcellent Easter weekend in the Royal City. Environment Canada is calling for cooler temperatures, some rain, and Saturday’s forecast includes a chance of flurries.

Here is a look at what’s open and closed this weekend, and more.
