When they were finally let loose on the fields

First ever Easter egg hunt draws huge crowd to Nelson park

Families filled Lakeside Park Saturday morning for the first annual Easter Egg Hunt.



Families filled Lakeside Park Saturday morning for the first annual Easter Egg Hunt.

Organized by Jana Cook and The Live in the Koots Team, the event was a fundraiser for the Nelson Food Cupboard. Craft tables, face painting, pictures with the Easter Bunny and hot chocolate kept folks busy while they waited for the main event – an Easter egg hunt.

With eggs spread around the park, three different age groups of children had their chance to fill their baskets and then exchange the eggs for goodies. It was a mad scramble.

Save on Foods, The Bridge, Nelson and District Community Complex and Jenn Pentland, co-sponsored the well-attended event.
