The Easter Bunny will arrive in Ucluelet on April 20.
Each year Uclueletâ€™s Black Rock Resort helps the Easter Bunny hide treats throughout Big Beach.
Last year, the Resort supplemented the Bunnyâ€™s offerings with over 5,000 Easter eggs mixed in â€œwith alternate gifts for the non-sugar consumers in the crowd,â€ according to the resortâ€™s general manager Adele Larkin.
Larkin sent a letter to council asking the district to pitch in $200 for this yearâ€™s event.
â€œOur hope is to again be able to offer a similar event to our wonderful community,â€ she said through the letter. â€œWe do need help though as it seems that each year the donations thin out a bit while expectation grows.â€
Council referred the request to the Uclueletâ€™s Parks and Recreation departmentâ€™s special events budget discussions.
Local kids are reminded to enter the Westerly Newsâ€™ Easter colouring contest by colouring the Easter Bunnyâ€™s portrait on page 3 of the current Westerly News and handing it in at the Westerly News office at 1801 Bay Street.
