Under brilliantly sunny skies, children paraded across Mill Bay Centre to nearby Brentwood College fields to enjoy the annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 20.

Organized into two areas: one for smaller children and another for the rest, the field was littered with shiny, foil-wrapped eggs.

As soon as the countdown finished, off the kids went, chasing down the slope and onto the grass, trying to gather as many treats as possible.
