Traditionally, the staff at the Fort Langley National Historic Site spill thousands of eggs on a large canvas map in the middle of the fort.
But due to construction and seeding of the grass, the annual Easter egg hunts for little children under five years old was actually moved outside the walls of the historic landmark.
A series of egg hunts were held throughout the day, where the little ones were turned loose – at the sound of a bell – and told to collect as many chocolates as they could.
“We’ll ring a bell. Chaos will ensue, and in about five minutes it will all be gone,” said Aman Johal, a fort interpreter for 18 years.
