Families flock to hunt Easter eggs

Around 75 children hopped around the Tillicum Twin Theatres

A gathering crowd of 75 children stampeded into the Tillicum Twin Theatres March 31 with one mission – find as many Easter eggs as possible.

“It was great to see everyone come out,” said Diane Robinson, event organizer. She helped hide around 400 chocolate eggs in the cinema, which included four golden eggs and special prizes from local businesses.

However, with limited hiding spaces available in the Theatre, it only took about fifteen minutes for the young ‘eggsperts’ to find all the Easter goodies.

“I didn’t think it would end so fast,” Robinson said. “We’ll just have to hide even more eggs next time.”

Eleven-year-old Aulden Brown found one of the golden eggs and beamed as he took a bag full of stuffed animals and other Easter treats from Robinson at the front table, which displayed free chocolate and candy for all participants after the hunt. Once the Theatre was properly ransacked, families were invited back for an afternoon screening of the movie Hop.

Robinson said they decided to host an Easter event for families in the cinema after finding out Heritage Park was closed starting the week of March 20th for renovations.

While this is the first ‘Eggstravaganza’ organized at the Theatre, Robinson said she looks forward to doing something “bigger and better” for families next year.
