Easter Bunny puts Port Colborne on his map

By Sarah Ferguson, Fort Erie Times


The Easter Bunny will be hopping his way into the lakeside city later this month.

The City of Port Colborne and its mayors youth advisory council will host Port Colborne’s inaugural Easter egg hunt Saturday, March 30, at 10 a.m. at Roselawn Centre.

“If the weather is beautiful, we’re hoping for at least 100 children,” said Gina Murdoch, the city’s events co-ordinator.

Children ages 10 and under are invited to participate for a $2 donation in support Port Colborne’s skatepark. The egg hunt will go on rain or shine. If the weather is poor, the event will be moved indoors, Murdoch said.

Each hunter will receive a bag full of treats and goodies after the hunt has finished.

“Kids can find as many eggs as they can, and we will have six special prizes for those who find special eggs.”

Those children will receive prizes that will be announced the day of the event.

Kids are welcome to enjoy colouring, face painting and a visit from the Easter Bunny. Registration for the egg hunt begins at 9:30 a.m.

Murdoch said the city has wanted to organize an egg hunt for a while now, and with the help of MYAC, the time is now.

As it is the first year of the hunt, Murdoch said organizers will “see how it goes.” The hope is that the egg hunt becomes a tradition in Port Colborne drawing hundreds of people to the event to have fun and make memories.
