Easter rain? No problem

 

The rainy weather did not dampen spirits at the annual Bunny Trail party in NOTL on Saturday.

Although the egg hunt was moved indoors at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Community Centre, children and families still walked away with some sweet Easter treats.

The event was organized by the Niagara-on-the-Lake Kinsmen Club and the Niagara Nursery School and Child Care Centre.

Families with children of all ages had a chance to participate in a variety of activities, including posing for pictures with Crystal Bunny. The event also featured face painting, a bake sale as well as an arts and crafts zone.

Ruth Belfie, who was at the event with her four-year-old granddaughter Maya Ballantyne, said this was the best year ever as the activities were more child-oriented.

Lonny Danieluk, who was there with his family, said the Bunny Trail is a great place to see the community.

“You see people you haven’t seen in a long time,” he told The Lake Report. 

The District 1 firefighting captain Michael Mitchell said volunteers have been participating in the event for a couple of years now.

Money raised from the event, which attracted hundreds of families, helps support the nursery school.
