What to do in Hamilton on March BreakLooking for something to do in Hamilton during March Break? There are several March Break events and activities across the city.

The Zoetic Theatre is holding a pyjama screening of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (the newest version). Show up in your pj’s and enjoy contests and games as well as the movie. The fun starts at 10am on Wednesday, March 16th 2016, tickets are $8 and available online but they usually sell tickets at the door as well.

Disney on Ice is back in Hamilton with Dare to Dream! This entertaining skating show includes favourite Disney characters such as Rapunzel from Tangle, Princess Tiana and Cinderella. Dare to Dream will be held at the FirstOntario Centre on March 17th– March 20th 2016. They have at least two shows each day and offer matinees as well as evening shows.

Cineplex will be offering March Break Movies, which are movies that have been brought back to theatres and tickets are much cheaper than usual at only $2.99. SilverCity Ancaster is not participating, but SilverCity Hamilton Mountain is participating and will be showing Minions, Paddington, and Shaun the Sheep. Movie times can be found by searching the Cineplex website for Hamilton Mountain.

The Hamilton Children’s Museum is a fabulous place to spend an afternoon with your little ones. They recently re-opened after some renovations were completed and are currently features the Summers Theatre Stage, the Building Gallery and the Ship Gallery. They have incredibly reasonable prices, $2 for anyone 13 years old and up, $4 for children ages 1-12, infants under 1 are free. They also have a family pass available for $9, which includes two adults and an unlimited number of dependent children under 18. Great deal! The other Hamilton Civic museums are also running March break programs, information can be found here.

The RBG is also an entertaining and educational place to take children to. While they are located in Burlington, not Hamilton, I have included them in this list because they are so close to Hamilton and are even accessible by bus from Hamilton. Their current theme is Reptile Rendezvous and is an interactive exhibit.
