Bunny buddies

The market offered kids a cuddle and photo session with the rabbit, while parents could check out dozens of vendors selling everything from Easter baking and flowers to direct sales products like Tupperware and scented wax.

Literary classic

Maya Davis read a selection from “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee on Monday during the Rainy River District Festival of the Performing Arts at Knox United Church. Davis was awarded First Place with Honours in her category for her performance. The annual festival is drawing to a close, with only two more days of adjudicated sessions remaining before the Highlights concert on April 30.

Snow couldn't stop 'Spring Fever'

The fallout from the sudden, heavy snowfall and frigid temperatures may have put a dampener on some of the festivities, but Emo's “Spring Fever Days” went out with a bang on its final day.

While not everything that was planned to run on Saturday survived the wild weather from earlier in the week, overall the day was hailed as a success.

Spring Fever BBQ

Grillmeister Steve Loshaw flipped burgers outside of Rainy River Meats in Emo during “Spring Fever Days” on Saturday. Sunshine and warmer weather helped to draw a crowd to the last day of the annual event after a cold and wintry week.

Spring Fever haircut

Marly Wrolstad got a haircut from Stacy Kreger as part of “Cuts for Cancer” at the Hair and Body Care Shoppe in Emo during Spring Fever Days on Saturday. Kreger said the annual event raised between $5,000-$6,000 for the Tamarack House in Thunder Bay, and more donations are expected to come in over the rest of this week.
