A basket full of Easter events on tap

Greater Trail's Easter events are getting everyone to join in the fun with egg hunts, BBQ and more.

Chocolate, dyed eggs, bunnies and of course, more chocolate, are staples this time of year and all across the Trail area, Easter events are getting everyone to join in the fun.

On Friday, both Fruitvale and Trail are hosting their own Easter egg hunt.

In Fruitvale, the sixth annual Beaver Valley Easter Egg Hunt begins at 11 a.m. in Haines Park with the Fruitvale Firefighters Non-Profit Society. There will be hot dogs, juice, and hot chocolate available for a donation, filling tummies before the time comes to hunt the over 7,000 chocolate eggs hidden in the park. There will be allergy-friendly and peanut-free chocolate available for kids with food allergies.

In Trail, families will be gathering at Gyro Park at 11 a.m. to go on the hunt for some candy and chocolate. Put together by EZ Rock and Trail Parks and Recreation, the Easter Bunny will be hopping by and helping in the hunt. There will be hot dogs and hamburgers for sale from the Kiwanis Club and all proceeds will be going to the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program. Organizers want to remind attendees to bring their own Easter baskets.

The Rossland Museum and Discovery Centre is hosting its own Easter activity day and egg hunt on Saturday. The events start at 11 a.m. with crafts and activities after all of the chocolate has been found.

In Oasis, Harding Heights Ranch is hosting their fourth annual Easter egg hunt. Starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, the ranch is inviting all children and families to their property to visit with the bunnies, lambs, chickens, horses and mini donkeys. Kids 2 to 5 will be hunting for eggs from 10 to 11:30 a.m., followed by an Easter hunt from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for 6-to-9-year-olds and for the older kids, age 10 and up, the hunt starts at 1 p.m. The day’s events cost $15 per child, and includes the Easter egg hunt, lunch and an Easter craft.

At Waneta Plaza on Saturday, every child nine-and-under is welcome to come and get their picture taken with the Easter Bunny from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. There will be games, a bake sale, and other activities scheduled throughout the morning.
