Many take part in events at Foster Park, Tiger Lily Farm on March 31

Many families turned out for both the Friends of Foster Park’s annual Easter Egg hunt, and Tiger Lily Farm’s Easter event on Saturday, March 31.

Music and clown performances preceded the hunt at Foster Park in Parksville, which had kids grouped by age scramble for chocolate eggs around the playground area and a grassy section of the park.

At Tiger Lily Farm in Errington, kids searched for and met various animals, including goats, chickens, horses, a calf and more. They also went searching for chocolate eggs in a hay wagon, decorated hard boiled eggs which had been hidden around the farm, and made their own Easter baskets.

The Tiger Lily Farm Easter event will continue through Monday, April 2. In addition, Milner Gardens and Woodland’s annual Bunny Trail will also continue April 1 and April 2, for those still looking for a bit of Easter fun.
