Hop on to the 100 Mile House Easter Egg hunt

“It just seems to get better every year”

The 100 Mile Free Press and Canlan Ice Sports are organizing the 3rd Annual Community Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 31 at the Lumberman’s Park Ball Fields next to the South Cariboo Rec Centre.

This year’s hunt features some great prizes, including two children’s bicycles, one for each age category and tickets for the Hoofbeats & Heartbeats Equestrian Camp for Kids, including accommodation.

Organizer and Free Press publisher Martina Dopf says she’s excited for the event.

“It just seems to get better every year. This year the 108 Lions are joining the event to make it even bigger.”

There will be a face painting station and the 108 Lions will be handing out free balloons and the 100 Mile Lions will be serving free hot dogs for children up to 12 years old, says Dopf.

The first hunt starts at 11:30 a.m. for children up to six years old. The second hunt starts at 11:45 for children between 7 and 12. Participants are asked to bring their own basket.

“My favourite part is always seeing all the kids running around full of excitement hunting for the eggs. It’s also always a lot of fun to see them with the Easter bunny,” she says.

“With the great prizes this year, we’re really expecting to see a lot of kids and families come out.
