Hopping in from all over

Chutes Coulonge held an Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, seeing families come from all around to participate in the various activities. Pictured, Cora Burnison works hard to make sure her basket is filled with as many eggs as possible.
The Chutes’ board of directors hope to expand the fun to include more activities for the whole family next year. From left, Charlotte and Alice Stitt enjoy a quick snack after having their faces painted.
Families travelled from Pembroke, Petawawa and Ottawa to join in on the fun at the Chutes Coulonge, where kids emerged with a sugar rush, faces painted and tummies filled. Pictured, Jacob Beimers collects eggs for his soon-to-be-full basket.

Families hopped over from Pembroke, Petawawa and even up from Ottawa to participate in the Chutes Coulonge Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday.
Complete with face painting, food and plenty of plastic eggs to fill more than a few baskets, kids had the freedom to enjoy all sorts of activities at the annual event.
“We’ve had lots of the turnout come from Petawawa and Pembroke,” said Dennis Blaedow, a member of the park’s board of directors.
Just a bit after noon on March 31, the park had seen over a hundred people attend the fun, with plenty more expected as the day ran through till 4 p.m.
