Hundreds of youngsters converge on Annapolis Royal for lots of bunny fun
Hundreds of youngsters turned out this morning for Annapolis Royal's eighth annual Easter Eggstravaganza. By 11 a.m. the kids were on the hunt for thousands of Easter eggs distributed around the grounds of Fort Anne. Within minutes the colourful plastic eggs were snatched up and put in bags or baskets. Later with help from parents, the eggs were broken open and the treats inside discovered.
Later at Historic Gardens teams of 10 to 14-year-olds started Annapolis Royal's own version of The Amazing Race. Participants started out looking for words to a poem in the rose garden. But before long they were running down to Fort Anne for a three-legged race and more cluse that took them to the lighthouse, the boardwalk, the playground and O'Dell House.
At ARTsPLACE Easter-themed crafts were being put together by youngsters with help from parents and volunteers. From decorating cookies to painting eggs, the place was packed. Plus there was face-painting and costumed picture-taking outside.
At King's Theatre there was an afternoon movie and the chance to win a bicycle. And back at Historic there was a GPS event.
