Gleeful children and their parents gathered on Easter morning at Honeymoon Bay Park to enjoy the annual Easter Egg Hunt organized by the local fire department, Sunday, April 21.

Once all children were registered, the little ones were gathered up for entry into their own area, and the bigger kids readied for the assault on the huge supply of eggs strewn around the place.

A fire truck horn sent them off excitedly off on the hunt.

But the Easter fun wasn’t over at Cowichan Lake. On Easter Monday poor weather couldn’t dampen the spirits of children who came out to the annual easter egg hunt behind the Lake Cowichan sports arena, then headed indoors for the free skate.
