With the Easter weekend just around the corner, two groups in Prince Rupert are planning for family fun to celebrate the holiday.

The Prince Rupert Rotary Club will be hosting its fifth annual Community Easter Egg Hunt at Rotary Waterfront Park on Saturday, April 7, beginning at 11 a.m. sharp. The event will feature hundreds of eggs filled with surprises hidden around the park – with eggs for the younger kids being hidden around Kwinitsa Station and eggs for the older kids hidden around the beach area. In addition to the hunt, there will also be some plush toys, donated by Overwaitea Foods, available for the hopeful hunters.

That same day the City of Prince Rupert Recreation Department will start the 17th annual Easter Weekend events with the first ever Easter events aimed at teens. There will be an egg hunt beginning at eight p.m. followed by Easter fun at the pool at 8:30 p.m., which will include movies, pop, candy, pizza and games.

The next day the Recreation Department will host events for kids six and under from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and for kids from seven to 12 from 12:30 a.m. to one p.m.

The Easter activities will wrap up with a 12 and under Easter swim from two p.m. to four p.m. at the  Earl Mah Aquatic Centre, which will again include games and prizes for those in
