San Juan Islands’ Firefighter Association hosts special edition of the annual Easter Egg Hunt

Submitted by the San Juan Islands’ Firefighter Association

The San Juan Islands’ Firefighter Association will host our second, special edition of the annual Easter Egg Hunt, from noon-2 p.m. this Sunday, April 4.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the association is offering a Friday Harbor Family Walking Tour. We hope you will join us for a fun walk around town, visit with some of our firefighters and keep an eye out for the Easter Bunny!

Wearing COVID-19 masks, families will follow a route around the town, looking to spot firefighters positioned outside, in front of certain businesses. They will stamp your passport and you can visit the Easter Bunny in the Wells Fargo bank parking lot on Spring Street.

The annual family Easter Egg Hunt has been hosted by the Firefighter Association for more than 25 years and the event has historically been held at Jackson Beach. Instead of canceling this tradition due to the COVID-19 health pandemic, the association created its second, special edition Easter Egg event for a safe, fun, outing for our Islands’ families.

Download the map and passport book and see if you get your passport fully stamped. The route and passport book are posted up on the San Juan Island Fire and Rescue website,

If you don’t have a printer, no problem! You can carry the map around on your cell phone or draw a quick one up on paper. All you really need to do is to walk a loop, mostly on Spring Street and keep a lookout for firefighters positioned in front of businesses. We hope to see you hopping around town this Sunday.

Thank you for all you are doing to keep our islands safe during this challenging time. We hope you have fun and thank you for keeping this island tradition alive! We hope to be back at Jackson Beach for next year’s traditional Easter Egg Hunt.
