SIX NATIONS — Traditional or not, easter festivities found their way into the long weekend for many Six Nations youth.
One of the egg-hunt hotspots included the SN Marketplace, which provided both an adult flash light hunt in the evening on Friday, March 30 and a child egg-hunt on at lunchtime on Saturday, March 31.
Organizer and Owner of the SN Marketplace John General said “it’s just giving back.”
“It was good to see the kids smiling,” said General. “I would say that there were about 300 of them.”
General noted that besides the cash prizes and more, the day offered the youth food, bouncey castles and a great memory for easter. But in regards to the adult egg-hunt, he said that the attendance reached even higher into the hundreds.
“We had 900 people paid and registered,” he said. “We had a lot of first-timers come too and we were worried about people respecting each other and property with so many people coming, but it was good so we’re going to do it again.”
General explained that the adult egg-hunt was provided so that attendees could “be kids again.”
