UPDATE: Easter events popping up across Chilliwack

Easter services cancelled in person, but some events still may be taking place

NOTE: This story was published prior to announcements made on Monday, March 29 once again banning in-person services and many other renewed restrictions. Some of the events listed are likely to be affected by the new restrictions.

There are still a few ways to celebrate this Easter in Chilliwack.

Churches had been planning to hold small, in-person services on Easter Sunday, but that hope was dashed on Monday afternoon with announcements of more restrictions across B.C.

Easter on the Farm is back again at the Chilliwack Corn Maze. This is a drive-through Easter experience, throughout the farm.

“Our drive-through Easter experience will allow you to enjoy Easter on the farm from the comfort of your own car with your loved ones,” the popular Chilliwack attraction’s website states.

There will be tractor displays from Prairie Coast Equipment, and farm displays from the Pacific Dairy Centre, along with animal displays, a scavenger hunt, special treats, and even the Easter bunny.

The drive through experience takes about five minutes, plus the wait time, and tickets are $5 per car. Tickets must be purchased ahead of time, online at chilliwackcornmaze.com. The tours are available from April 2-5.

There are also concession items available for purchase.

Southside Community Wide Egg Hunt

Southside Church is holding a Chilliwack-wide egg hunt on Saturday, April 3.

They are releasing more details on March 31 on their website and Facebook page. The hunt includes some pretty big prizes, including Airpods, Apple watches, hoverboards, gift cards to local restaurants, and an all-expenses paid weekend trip.

“We won’t give too much away, but clues will have you searching our city, leading you to huge prizes for the entire family,” their website states. “Spread the word for this fun weekend by inviting your friends through this event.”

They were looking forward to holding their Easter services in their new location at 45636 South Sumas Road.

They are also planning on holding Easter egg hunts in parks around Chilliwack on April 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and will be releasing more information on those events on March 31 as well.

The website for their events is www.easterinchilliwack.com, where updates can be found.

Popcorn for a cause

Crossroads Community Church is doing something good on Good Friday, April 2.

They will be taking over the parking lot at Cottonwood Cinema, and giving out popcorn from noon to 2 p.m.

All they ask for in return is a donation to the Salvation Army Food Bank.

The current top items needed by the food bank are macaroni and cheese, baby food and diapers size 4, 5 and 6, granola bars, potatoes, carrots and tin vegetables.

Those heading there will need to enter the back of the lot, via Amber Drive, and exit onto Luckakuck Way to avoid congesting traffic.
