Easter weekend hops to a great start in Kelowna

Easter egg hunts were a big hit today.

Fun was had by all this afternoon at the annual Easter Egg Hunt and Pancake Breakfast at Parkinson Recreation Centre.

Pastor Diana Tripke with the Victory Life Fellowship, the host organization, said the 15th annual event usually attracts 1,500 kids and to get ready for them, they had 15,000 eggs, countless pancakes, buckets of popcorn ready.

If you’re worried you missed out, don’t be. There’s still plenty to do this weekend.
