Numerous Easter egg hunts took place around Drumheller on Saturday.
 
One of those hunts took place in Centennial Park behind the Badlands Community Facility. The second annual event was organized by Grace Lutheran Church.
 
"It was wonderful to have so many people come and join us and the kids had lots of fun collecting the eggs, so I think it was a wonderful event and we'll do it again next year," smiled Michelle Gamble of Grace Lutheran Church.

Despite a chilly wind families reported having a great time at the hunt. Activities continued inside the BCF where kids made Easter bracelets.
 
Gamble hopes people remember the true reason behind the celebration.
 
"Just wanted to say thank you to everyone for helping us celebrate the resurrection of Christ. That's what Easter means to us and we just want to share God's love with other people," she added.
 
Similar Easter egg hunts took place at the Royal Tyrrell Museum, Extra Foods, O'Shea's and Co-op.
