The Easter long weekend is highlighted by two great community events here in South Delta.
On Saturday, April 20 from 9 a.m. to noon, the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen presents its annual Easter egg hunt and pancake breakfast in Diefenbaker Park.
The free event features the breakfast served up Rotary style as well as pony rides, a petting zoo, face painting, balloon twisters, cookie decorating, a bouncy castle and more than 10,000 Easter eggs up for grabs donated by Save-On-Foods.
The Easter Bunny will be joined by the Delta police Safety Bear for the egg hunt, which begins at 10:30 a.m.
“The Rotary Club of Tsawwassen has enjoyed putting on this event for a long time for our South Delta residents,” said Rotarian Leslie Abramson. “This is one of three community events that our whole club gets involved in and we love to see all the happy faces in the park that day.”
The Easter Bunny and the Delta Police Pipe Band have both been lined up to take part in the Ladner Business Association’s annual parade through Ladner Village on Easter Sunday.
The parade begins at 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 21 at the Ladner Community Police Station and proceeds down Delta Street to an Easter egg hunt at Memorial Park.
Kids are encouraged to wear their bunny ears and decorate their bikes, wagons and strollers.
The event is free thanks to the generosity of many local sponsors.
“It’s an event that the LBA really looks forward to putting on,” said event chair Mandip Gill. “The LBA is excited to see the growth of the event. I think kids enjoy coming out and being able to participate in the parade and decorate their bikes and then you have the Easter egg hunt with the Easter Bunny and parents can take photos, so it’s a really family-friendly event. We look forward to the community coming out to enjoy part of their Easter Sunday with us.”
