Easter Bunny at its best in Annapolis Royal’s Eggstravaganza

ANNAPOLIS ROYAL - Hundreds of youngsters converged on Fort Anne in Annapolis Royal April 16 for one of the biggest Easter egg hunts in the province.

More than 10,000 eggs were ‘hidden’ around the fort in the annual Easter Eggstravaganza that attracted kids from all over the Annapolis Valley and beyond.

At ‘eggsactly’ 11 a.m. the kids began their hunt and within 10 minutes most of the eggs were found. Parents and grandparents were on hand to lend support. The Easter Bunny also made an appearance, as did a Parks Canada beaver mascot and a police chief with bunny ears.

The annual event has become a tradition in the province’s smallest town and draws youngsters and their families from Halifax to Yarmouth for a variety of fun activities including the Easter egg hunt, the Annapolis Royal Amazing Race, and a free movie for kids at King’s Theatre.
