Families gathered at the Co-op Mall on Saturday, Mar. 24 for the annual Easter egg hunt. The event marks the first of four annual Kids Club events held by Co-op and is quite possibly organizer Sherri Armstrong's favourite event.

Although registration was suggested, Armstrong wasn't turning anyone away on Saturday morning.

"People just show up and that's OK. We had about 50 kids registered and I counted about 50 kids between the two age groups."

The event was a two-for-one. Kids aged 0-6 were invited to search for eggs starting at 10 a.m. and kids aged 7-12 got their chance at 10:30 a.m.

"We fill the troughs with candy and they hunt for them. But, there's also plastic Easter eggs with corresponding numbers and then the kids can win prizes."

Armstrong pointed out that some of the prizes this year were donated by mall merchants, adding an extra layer of fun as kids went off in search of their prize.

Despite the weather, there was no question of whether or not to cancel this year's event.

"It is probably our biggest event -- the one we have the most attendance at -- because, in my opinion, it's the most fun!"

Co-op mascot Cooper was also on hand to help kids find eggs and collect their prizes.
