Deborah Moore of Remax Orchard Country said the event was well attended.

“I think we’ve got thousands of people here today,” she said on Saturday.

The organizers stopped counting after the first 500 people arrived.

She said the event is becoming a popular Easter weekend tradition in Summerland.

“It grows every year,” she said. “We’re really building on something here.”

The festival was started when real estate agents at Remax wanted to host a community event.

“The Remax agents wanted to do something special for the community and families,” Moore said.
