Plans in place for Prince Rupert Easter egg hunts

Children around the North Coast will want to get their Easter egg baskets ready for the coming long weekend.

Children around the North Coast will want to get their Easter egg baskets ready for the coming long weekend as two groups in the community prepare for their annual Easter Egg Hunts.

First up is the Prince Rupert Rotary Club’s community Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 19. This year’s event will begin at 11 a.m. sharp, rain or shine down at Mariner’s Park. Hundreds of eggs will be hidden in the park, but they go quickly so being punctual is critical.

The following day, the City of Prince Rupert Recreation Department will host its annual Easter festivities at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre.

In addition to the thousands of eggs that are hidden throughout the facility for children of all ages, the recreation department is introducing an Easter Egg decorating contest with prizes in different categories.

However, to ensure a Happy Easter for everyone, the Prince Rupert Recreation Department is looking for prize donations.  Anyone who may be able to help out can contact Calvin or Kendal at 250-627-7946.
