No April Fool’s, just fun at annual Ponoka Home Church Easter celebration


Hippity Hop: Despite the chilly temperatures, many of the children were excited to take on the two bouncy castles at the annual Ponoka Home Church’s Easter celebration.

Cute and cuddly: Both young and old were excited to check out the animals from Finnegan Farms mobile petting zoo that was onsite at the annual Easter celebration.

Not the Easter Bunny: These two youngsters didn’t mind one bit that this fuzzy bunny they got to pet had nothing to with candy. The bunny, as well as a llama and a miniature horse from Finnegan Farms mobile petting zoo near Redwater were part of the annual Easter celebration.
