Spring is nearly here and that means it is time for the annual Fort Steele Easter Egg Hunt.

A long time Kootenay tradition, the annual Easter Egg Hunt promises a day of fun filled activities for the whole family. Join us on Sunday, March 27th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for Easter egg hunts, games and a delicious brunch prepared and served at the International Hotel Restaurant. Decorate your bike and enter it into our parade taking place down Main Street at noon or plant a seed and take it home to watch it grow.  Bring in a decorated Easter Egg from home and enter it into our decorated egg contest. There will be a church service taking place at 1 p.m. and the Wildhorse Theatre will be showing Easter movies throughout the day.

Tickets for this event will be available at the door for $6. Members and children two and under are free. Memberships will be available at the door and your membership helps Fort Steele Heritage Town provide quality programming throughout the year.

For more information on this and other events please call 250-417-6000 or visit www.fortsteele.ca.
