Community Centre 55 is looking for volunteers to help out at the Good Friday Easter Egg Hunt in Kew Gardens.
The event is in need of face painters to create designs for children such as bunny faces and any other Easter-related art. The annual egg hunt will be held on Friday, April 19 from 11a.m. to 2 p.m. at Kew Gardens park, 2075 Queen St. E.
This is the second annual Easter egg hunt at Kew Gardens. This year’s event will feature free face painting, children’s entertainment, lots of chocolate and an age-grouped egg hunt with a visit from the Easter bunny.
Entertainment will also feature Juno-award winning group Sonshine and Broccoli, along with a performance from Peppa Pig.
Centre 55’s special events and volunteer coordinator, Jade Maitland, said the event will be a special one.
“It’s a unique event and a great location,” Maitland said. “It will also be one of the largest and best Easter egg hunt events in the city.”
The event is organized by Lido Chilelli, who also organizes the Beaches Jazz Festival.
He said this will be something children will be looking forward to. “I definitely think it will be like Disneyland in the Beach,” Chilelli said.
