The City of Prince Rupert Recreation Department is gearing up for a busy weekend of Easter activities this Sunday.

Following the Prince Rupert Rotary Club’s Community Easter Egg Hunt at 11 a.m. on Saturday, the department will hold two hunts of its own on Sunday. The first will be for children six and under, which will run from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., while the second will take place from 12:30 p.m. until 1 p.m. for children between the ages of seven and 12.

Staff will then shift their focus from hunting to swimming with the Annual Easter Swim. This year’s event will take place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Earl Mah Aquatic Centre with games, prizes and other fun activities.

Look for coverage of the Easter weekend in next week’s issue of the Northern View.
