This Mother’s Day, stop by the Station Museum between noon and 3pm to see live painting with J Peachy. J is a contemporary outsider artist that believes in the healing properties of the natural environment. He paints landscapes in abstract as an expression of his connection with nature and its ability to provide peaceful inspiration. He believes all organisms on this earth are interconnected with nature and highly interdependent. Through painting, he tries to capture the interrelationship between mind and nature.
J will be contributing 50% of the proceeds of his painting to the Museum.

Thanks J!

11th Annual Easter Egg Hunt

Joyce Johnstone & Twinkletoes


The Port Moody Station Museum is putting on its 11th annual Easter celebration Sunday, April 24th. The main event is the Easter egg hunt – we hide marbles and kids exchange them for chocolate eggs. But that’s not all! Visitors can also enjoy performances by magician Dennis Hewson, dog dancing team Joyce Johnstone and Twinkletoes and music by Nigel Tucker. Other activities include face painting, photos with the Easter bunny, Easter basket craft with Liz Summerfield, the duck pond prize game and a bubble zone.

Great for young kids. We’ll even have a special area for toddler egg hunting. We resupply our hidden eggs throughout, so no need to rush.

Performance Schedule
Dennis the Magician – 10:30, 11:30 & 12:30
Joyce and Twinkletoes – 11:00, 12:00 & 1:00
Nigel Tucker – throughout the day

Concession available at the event with coffee, hot dogs, popcorn and drinks.

Admission is $2 per person – available at the door CASH ONLY. (Additional cost for some activities.)

Parking available next door at Rocky Point Park.
