Easter Bunny en route to Ucluelet

The Easter Bunny will arrive in Ucluelet on April 20.

Each year Ucluelet’s Black Rock Resort helps the Easter Bunny hide treats throughout Big Beach. 

Last year, the Resort supplemented the Bunny’s offerings with over 5,000 Easter eggs mixed in “with alternate gifts for the non-sugar consumers in the crowd,” according to the resort’s general manager Adele Larkin.

Larkin sent a letter to council asking the district to pitch in $200 for this year’s event.

 â€œOur hope is to again be able to offer a similar event to our wonderful community,” she said through the letter. “We do need help though as it seems that each year the donations thin out a bit while expectation grows.”

Council referred the request to the Ucluelet’s Parks and Recreation department’s special events budget discussions.

Local kids are reminded to enter the Westerly News’ Easter colouring contest by colouring the Easter Bunny’s portrait on page 3 of the current Westerly News and handing it in at the Westerly News office at 1801 Bay Street.
