Come to the Courtenay Museum on April 6 for the annual Spring Fling.

Spring Fling and Easter Things at Courtenay Museum

There is a lot of fun in store at the museum’s Spring Fling and Easter Things event which runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 6.

The ever-popular petting zoo (courtesy of Shamrock Gumboots 4H Club) gives folks a chance to meet lambs, kids (baby goats), ducks, geese, bunnies and chickens.

We’ve invited some special guest including Cathy from Magical Faces who will paint faces for a small fee and the Hot Chocolates Easter Rabbit who will be here between 12:30 and 1 p.m. to hand out delicious chocolate.

At 12:15 p.m. Al Morton will be giving a talk on how to attract Mason Bees to your back yard and he will also have mason bee houses for sale.

The elasmosaur mascot will be making an appearance for fun photo opportunities.

We’ve planned some fun new crafts and games plus activities for little ones. People can also enter to win door prizes and try their luck at guessing games, plus a dinosaur egg hunt with a twist.

Admission is by donation with half of the proceeds going to the Shamrock Gumboots 4H Club. For more details call 250-334-0686 ext. 2.
