Easter hops into Oak Bay

Family fun comes to the village Saturday, March 26

Oak Bay’s Tony Joe has a chat with the Easter Bunny before his Oak Bay visit.

Easter hip-hops into the Oak Bay village this Saturday.

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 26, the park behind the Oak Bay municipal hall will be filled with the fourth annual Easter celebration, bigger and better than ever, promises co-ordinator and Oak Bay realtor Tony Joe.

Hosted by the Oak Bay Business Improvement Association, planned activities include candy hunts, photos with the Easter Bunny, crafts, face painting, coffee, treats and more.

There’s also the chance to get up close and personal with an Oak Bay fire truck and police car.

“There are lots of things for kids to do  … (and) we ordered good weather from the Easter Bunny,” Joe says.

Between 600 and 800 people are expected to come by the park.

“It’s another great way for families to get out together and it’s such a great event for the village as well.”

All the activities are free, but families are asked to bring a non-perishable food item or a donation for the Mustard Seed food bank, Joe says.

“With your help, we can make sure everyone has a happy Easter.”

Kids of all ages are invited to join the fun and to help the traditional hunt run smoothly, participants will be divided into age groups.

Candy hunt start times are:

• 0 to 4 years 11:30 to 11:45 a.m.

• 5 to 7 years 11:45 a.m. to 12 p.m.

• 8 to 10 years 12 to 12:15 p.m.

• 11 years and older 12:15 to 12:30 p.m.

“It’s just so much fun,” Joe says. “People love it and the kids love it.”
