Egg hunt planned at Riptide

Kathy Fraser is getting ready to see some chocolate-smeared faces, excited children and maybe even a few tears as she gears up for the annual Riptide Lagoon Adventure Golf Giant Easter Egg Hunt.

The hunt, slated for Sunday, April 8, will see a small army — in more ways than one — descend on the Parksville fun centre to seek out at least some of the 5,000 Easter eggs she and her staff are hiding.

“We put the little kids in one area — the little little ones — so they aren’t being bowled over by bigger kids,” she said. “We put out six marked golf balls along with all the Easter eggs and the lucky people who find them get a giant stuffed bunny. There could be a few tears from kids who found them but didn’t realize it, so there will also be some consolation prizes of free passes and so on.”

The event, designed for children aged 10 and under, is mostly about filling the need for fun. However, Fraser said she’s hoping to fill another need as well.

“It’s free to everybody, but we will have one of the Salvation Army kettles and some totes at our front gate and we are asking people to give cash or non perishable food item donations for the food bank,” she said. “We’ve done this in the past for other things, but this year we just thought the Salvation Army was important.”
