Courtenay Easter Promenade has a homemade theme this year

Decorate your house; chance to win prizes

Courtenay Recreation’s popular Easter Promenade is coming to your home this year!

Due to the need for physical distancing, recreation staff have re-worked the event to make it something you can do together as a family and it will benefit the entire community.

Decorate your house with your family in an Easter theme using whatever materials you have around. Be creative and colourful; this could involve painting windows, decorating doors, making a sculpture and more.

While doing this fun activity, please maintain physical distancing from others, and use as many materials you already have on hand. If you need something for your decorating, please consider getting it delivered.

Post a photo of your decorated home on our Facebook event page from April 10 – 13 and your family could have a chance to win gift certificates to local merchants: 1st prize – $100, 2nd prize – $90, 3rd prize – $80, 4th prize – $70, 5th prize – $60.

Once all entries are received, 20 will be chosen to be displayed on Facebook. The public will be invited to vote on their favorite from these 20 choices from April 15 – 16. Winners will be announced on Friday, April 17 on the City of Courtenay Facebook page and website.

For more information, please contact the Lewis Centre at 250-338-5371 or email
