The second annual Easter Egg Hunt in Nelson’s Lakeside Park takes place Saturday, April 19 at 10 a.m.

The Easter Bunny will be busy hiding eggs in the morning for all the kids to enjoy.

This event is a fundraiser for the Nelson Food Cupboard and everyone is invited to come down with the whole family and enjoy the festivities.

Attendees are asked to bring a donation of cash or non-perishable food items as you enter the park.

There will be craft tables, face painting, and balloons for the kids. The Nelson Rotary will host a hot dog sale this year and the proceeds will also go to the Nelson Food Cupboard.

Photos with the Easter Bunny will be by donation. Please bring your own camera.

The public is advised to dress warm (depending on the weather), bring their boots and don’t forget to bring your Easter baskets.

There will be four different age groups for the egg hunts. They include age two, three to four, five to six and seven to 10-plus.

The event is being sponsored by Nelson and District Community Complex, Save on Foods, The Bridge/Mountain FM, The Live in the Koots Team with Fair Realty and Nelson Rotary.

For more information, contact Jana Cook at 250-509-0901.
