The BC Forest Discovery Centre expanded their Easter Eggspress to 3 days a couple of years ago for the annual Easter Scavenger Hunt for families in and visiting the Cowichan Region. “This event has been a popular spring tradition for over ten years and become so popular that a couple of years ago we felt it was time to expand it to the whole 3 day weekend. Turned out so well that we’re continuing it again this Easter,” says Chris Gale, manager at the BC Forest Discovery Centre.
“Unlimited Green Hornet train rides, the Easter Bunny, goodie bags, crafts and a great educational experience, are just some of the reasons for kids of all ages to come out to the three day event.” A special admission rate of $6 for children 3 – 12 years (2 and under are FREE) and $8 for adults/seniors/youth makes it an affordable, fun day for all. This year’s event is scheduled for the Saturday, Sunday, and Easter Monday from 10 am to 4 pm with goodie bags being provided for children who complete the scavenger hunt. To add to our FUN concession menu, is pizza by the slice at great prices. A special thanks goes out to sponsor Save On Foods, who also is supplying the goodie bags of Easter Treats!
“Easter Eggspress is a fun way to kick off our new season”. The Easter Scavenger Hunt is just the beginning of a season full of special events. Other events planned for the 2018 season include Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, an Antique Truck Show, Kid’s Day, Labour Day, the opening of our new ‘Forests Forever’ Exhibit this fall, Halloween Train,
and of course, the always popular Christmas Express. Plus, you can guarantee the fun and knowledgeable staff at the BC Forest Discovery Centre will probably add a few surprise days in the year!
