The Annual Barriere Lion’s Easter Egg Hunt was graced with a warm sunny Spring day that presided over the event held at the Barriere Ball Parks on Easter Sunday, Mar. 31.
Starting the day off at 8 a.m. with one of the famous Lion’s breakfasts, everyone was “full up” and ready to “hunt up” hundreds of chocolate eggs by 10 a.m. This was when the giant Easter Rabbit made his much anticipated appearance.
Thanks to the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association Ambassadors, and the 2013 Ambassador candidates, the rabbit was well-escorted as he posed for numerous photographs with youngsters or handed out chocolate eggs.
Some of the very little ones were certainly amazed at the size of the Easter Rabbit, showing big eyes and open mouths as their parents led them over to make his acquaintance. A few found the bunny just a bit to scary for words, but most gave him a big hug, a shy grin, and a whispered “thank you” for the chocolates.
Thanks to the Lion’s Club for a great Easter Egg Hunt and an engaging community event.
