The second annual Easter Egg Hunt in Nelson’s Lakeside Park attracted more than 1,000 people this morning (April 19).

Hosted by the Nelson and District Community Complex, the event featured face painting, crafts, photos with the Easter Bunny and the egg hunt. Children collected eggs and then turned them in for a goody bag of treats. Save-on Foods donated more than 1,000 treat bags to the event. Other sponsors included The Bridge, Fair Realty and the Nelson Rotary Daybreak volunteers who hosted a hot dog barbecue. All funds raised went to the Nelson Food Cupboard.
