Hundreds of chocolate eggs and lollipops were hidden along Barkerville’s historic Front Street, and children of all ages turned out Sunday (April 21) with colourful bags and baskets to search in the snowbanks and around buildings for Easter treats.

The free Easter Egg Hunt at Barkerville Historic Town and Park featured the egg hunt down Front Street, as well as free hot dogs and hot chocolate for participants.

Barkerville opens for the summer season May 16.
