On April 21, the North Delta Lions Club held its 51st annual Easter egg hunt in Sunbury Park.

Leila Oboril and her six-year-old son Marcus were present at the event, ready to enjoy the free activities.

“We’ve been coming here since he was two,” Leila said. “We come every year.”

When asked why they keep coming back, Leila replied, “well because it’s great, lots of kids egg hunting. It’s a great community event.”

Marcus went through a surgery to his leg roughly two months ago, but still found the energy to come out and participate in the event, even offering a candy bag to a fellow egg-hunter that wasn’t as lucky.

Leila said Marcus’ favourite part of the event is, of course, “looking for eggs and finding some.”

Besides one unfortunate occurrence of getting a candy bag stuck high up in a tree, the event went without a hitch, with Easter eggs for all.
