There may have been 800 eggs hidden in Prince Rupert, but it took less than 10 minutes for them all to be found.
On Saturday morning the Prince Rupert Rotary Club hosted its annual Community Easter Egg Hunt at Mariner’s Park for the first time this year after five years of being held at the waterfront, but the change didn’t seem to affect the enjoyment of the hundreds of youngsters who came out to search. In addition to the 800 eggs, there was a draw for two Easter baskets and Rotarians handed out small chocolate bunnies to make sure nobody left empty handed.
The Easter festivities continue tomorrow as the City of Prince Rupert Recreation Department holds a massive hunt at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre. A hunt for children six and under will be held at 11 a.m., a hunt for kids between seven and 12 will get underway at 12:30 and an Easter swim will begin at two p.m.
