The arrival of Easter and springtime signals a bright new beginning — a fresh new start. This rebirth is symbolized in the chocolate eggs, bunnies and chicks we so happily indulge in after a long, dark winter. After the year we’ve all had, a fresh start sounds pretty great. Thankfully, Easter arrives about as early as possible this year, on Sunday, April 4th. To help you and your family celebrate, we wanted to share some suggestions on where to shop for Easter in Niagara Falls.
