More than 300 families came out to North Delta’s Sunbury Park on Sunday (April 17) for the North Delta Lions Club’s annual Easter egg hunt.

After being forced to cancel the 2020 hunt and adapting it last year into a drive-thru celebration, club members were keen to return to the in-person event for its 52nd anniversary.

“We’re excited just to see the children enjoying an in-person activity again,” Lion Nicholle Dhaliwal, the event’s chair, said leading up to the event. “It’s been so long and we need to see each other smile again (…) by bringing some joy and doing something positive for the community.”

Kids aged 1-11 who came out Sunday afternoon took home around 52 kilograms of chocolate eggs as well as 260 larger chocolate surprises distributed by Lions Club members, with help from Delta firefighters and Delta Police community volunteers.
