The Baynes Lake Parks and Rec. Society held their annual Easter in the Park Easter egg hunt at the Glen Sandberg memorial park in Baynes Lake on Saturday, April 7.

Families from all of the surrounding communities came armed with Easter baskets and smiles. For those who had never been before, they were surprised to see that the event was much more than just an egg hunt.

Games, crafts and cookie decorating, hot dogs, juice and chips were available to keep the smiles going. Due to a looming dark cloud the games were held indoors at the community centre. Thankfully the cloud stayed away and the sun shone for what proved to be another successful community event.

All of the children received a prize at the end of the hunt and of course they had chocolate smiles to take home.

Two door prize items were given, one being a four-man tent donated by Canadian Tire in Fernie, the other, of course, a large stuffed Easter bunny.

The event entertained over 100 people this year. It’s a great way to spend Easter with your family and we hope to see you all again next year. A big thanks to all of the community members and businesses that helped to make the event a success.

Whoever the anonymous person is who fixed our merry-go-round the day before the hunt, we thank you too.
