Children gather for Easter festival

Remax Orchard Country in Summerland held the third annual Remax Easter Egg-stravaganza on Saturday

Hundreds of children and their parents gathered in Summerland’s Memorial Park on Saturday morning for the third annual Remax Easter Egg-stravaganza.

“We’ve got a lot going on,” said Julia Monforton, organizer of the festival.

Some of the activities included a children’s colouring contest, a bouncy castle, a rock climbing wall, face painting, tours of the fire truck and more.

“It’s a lot of fun and we really enjoy putting it on,” Monforton said.
