The Town of Blackfalds is inviting families to the Family Easter Event today. 

The event starts at noon with a charity BBQ in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters, followed by family activity booths, including games, crafts, a surprise appearance from the Easter bunny, and prize draws.  

Community Engagement Programmer for Blackfalds Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) Jan Pocock explained that the Family Easter Event is geared towards youth between three and 10, who can participate in activities such as pin the tail on the bunny, letter toss, and an egg and spoon race.  

“This has been a long-standing tradition here in Blackfalds. We always invite new families to come. This event is all about celebrating family, having kids, organizations, and parents all engaged together for just some simple free family fun,” Pocock said. “It's for families who want to come out and have a little bit of fun with no cash barriers.”  

The Family Easter Event is open from noon to 2 p.m., on March 23, at the Blackfalds Community Centre (4810 Womacks Rd).
