In addition to enjoying temperatures in the mid-teens, kids and parents were treated to a fun-filled Easter Sunday in Saskatoon.

Forty-six families/groups took part in the Saskatoon Nutana Rotary Club Easter egg scavenger hunt encompassing all of the city.

Using clues provided to them, families went around collecting up to eight non-edible eggs that contained a toy, and a piece of paper they were required to keep in order for the chance to win a prize from the final drawings.

Their final stop was the forestry farm where the final egg and chocolate and candy bag awaited them.

Rotary Club Easter egg scavenger hunt coordinator Candace Odishaw says after COVID-19 cancelled their rib-fest in 2020, they wanted to put something on that followed safety protocols and provided some enjoyment to families.

“We want to do something safe that can get families out. We have been cooped up all winter,” said Odishaw. “Families can safely drive around town, mask up, come pick their Easter egg and move on to the next location.”
