The kids were in fine form Easter Sunday

Partial sun, 100 per cent fun at Easter Egg hunt

The 17th Annual Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by Overwaitea attracted a huge number of kids and parents to Nakusp’s downtown park.

The 17th Annual Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by Overwaitea attracted a huge number of kids and parents to Nakusp’s downtown park. Although the sun was out, it was cool enough in the shade to keep the sugary treats from melting where they lay.

A portion of the park and playground had been cordoned off, but the glittering foil-wrapped goodies scattered on the ground were easy to see. Larger plastic eggs had been hidden for the larger sugary prizes: boxes of chocolates and large cocoa-based figurines.

Lucky seekers who found the plastic eggs took them to the seasonal celebrity, the Easter Bunny to trade them for their prize.

The Easter Bunny arrived in style, chauffeured in a Nakusp fire engine, to officiate the hunt. E.B. was assisted by several floppy-eared assistants who helped dish out the chocolate to the kids.

For the more savoury-inclined in the crowd, there were hot dogs for food and a bevy of beverages to help wash the chocolate down. The kids benefitted in town, but also at the Childrens’ Hospital, where all the money made from the food sold was being donated at the end of the day.
