Easter treats for all in Gazebo Park

The Easter Bunny shared treats with anyone plucky enough to visit in Gazebo Park.

The Easter Bunny shared treats with anyone plucky enough to visit in Gazebo Park. Overwaitea has been inviting the chocolate making philanthropist to their fundraising Easter event for over a decade. All proceeds from the afternoon of springtime fun will be donated to Children’s Hospital on behalf of Overwaitea in Nakusp. The Chamber of Commerce event coordinator, Wanda Saunders, orchestrated the recycled Easter basket, Easter bonnet, and candy jar contests during the festivities in Gazebo Park.

“Overwaitea was kind enough to let the Chamber piggy back off their event this year,” Saunders shared. In addition to the contests, Saunders was also handing out prizes for the golden ticket initiative. “We had 13 local businesses donate over $600 worth of prizes,” said Saunders. Local businesses handed out plastic eggs for floor limit purchases and those who found golden tickets won a prize to be redeemed at the Gazebo Park event.
