Lake Cowichan’s Easter egg hunt makes a happy return to the great outdoors.

The big field at Centennial Park wasn’t quite ready for them but Lake Cowichan children still got to enjoy the sunshine and blue sky as they hunted for Easter eggs this year.

Many kids had old-fashioned Easter baskets, but a few others brought other kinds of containers, or even backpacks to haul away their chocolate treats.

The foil-wrapped eggs were strewn all over the Little League ball diamond — quite a change from last year when poor weather forced everyone into the Cowichan Lake Sports Arena for the event. The outdoor venue was popular with attendees.

What better way to celebrate Easter at Lake Cowichan than outdoors with friends.
