Egg hunters get ready
April 14, 2022
The traditional egg hunts return this year with two Easter Egg Hunts in the area this weekend. For the first time since the pandemic started, the Seeley Lake Lions Club returns to their traditional egg hunt at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 16 in the ball fields at Seeley Lake Elementary. On Easter Sunday, April 17 at 1 p.m. the Klassen Family will host the annual Condon Community Easter Egg Hunt in the Condon Ball Field, just north of the Condon Airstrip on Highway 83.
Children ages 0-12 are invited to participate in the Lions Club Easter Egg Hunt. Everyone is encouraged to sign up by 12:45pm by the school for the 1 p.m. start. Children are separated by age group to hunt for the candy-filled eggs. Some of the eggs also contain a number that can be turned in for a toy prize at the end. In years past the Easter Bunny has also made an appearance.
All ages are welcome to the Community Egg Hunt in Condon Easter Sunday. Participants will be separated into three different hunts for the following age groups: 0-5, 6-20 and 21+.
Among the 3,000 candy-filled eggs will be some that contain prizes for younger participants and drink tickets for older participants. Prizes include brownies and assorted items for the youth and gift baskets, beer, wine, alcohol and drink tickets for the ID holding 21+ age adults. Golden tickets will also be hidden in some of the eggs for the chance to win the $50 grand prize.
The event will kick off with the Pledge of Allegiance and an invocation. Sponsors include Swan Valley Centre, Hungry Bear Bar & Grill and Liquid Louie’s.
Participants at both egg hunts are encouraged to bring a basket or bag for their eggs and dress for the weather.
