With the sun shining and the long weekend at hand, families were out partaking in the many Easter celebrations happening across Metro Vancouver.

VanDusen Garden held its sold-out egg hunt on Saturday morning.

An event for kids of all ages, Easter eggs were scattered around the park for little ones to find.

Even the Easter bunny made an appearance.
