With spring here, that means Easter is just around the corner. And with Easter comes Easter egg hunts!

In Grand Forks, there will be a community Easter egg hunt on Saturday, April 4 at City Park from 10 a.m. until noon.

There will also be games and booths, a colouring contest and door prizes for the kids.

There will be a short presentation including a skit and a dance and lots of candy!

Donations of wrapped candy or toys are greatly appreciated and can be dropped off at Grand Forks Realty or River Valley Community Church.

There will also be an Easter egg hunt in Christina Lake on Sunday, April 5 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Welcome Centre.

The Easter egg hunt is sponsored by the Christina Lake Fire Fighter Society and Lisa’s Bistro.

There will be prizes for different age categories. Anyone wishing to donate candy, chocolate or cash can drop it off at the Welcome Centre, Tempo, Esso or Huckleberry Market.

There is no charge for either event and both are open to all kids “from 0 up.”
