A hopping success

The downtown core was hopping on Saturday, with the return of the Kiwanis Club of Fort Frances Easter Egg-Stravaganza! Hundreds bounded down to the Rainy Lake Market on Scott Street, to meet the Easter Bunny himself, collect goodies from local organizations and merchants and enter their name for great draw prizes. Not even the fresh snow could cool the excitement of the event’s return after two years of Covid restrictions. It was deemed by all an egg-cellent success. The event was organized by the Kiwanis Club, which focuses on the betterment of children’s lives. It funds summer camps, food and literacy programs, and is the new organizer of the Santa Claus Parade. – Allan Bradbury photo
