Family Fun at the Downtown Easter Hunt

Thank you to all who joined us for this fun family event in Downtown Alameda. Were you there? Post your photos on our Facebook page:

Downtown Alameda Easter HuntThe Downtown Alameda Business Association, in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Alameda, is hosting a Downtown Easter Hunt on Saturday, April 15 from 11:00am to 2:00pm. Kids and their families are invited to take part in the fun.

Over 25 shops and restaurants will be providing free treats, as well as a variety of other family activities. Children ages 12 and under are welcome with an adult… some businesses will even have special treats for parents.

The event is free. So grab a basket (and the kids) and come out to enjoy the search for prizes and treats in Downtown Alameda!

How It Works:

1) Bring Your Own Basket

The event is for children ages 12 and under. Bring your own basket to collect treats from participating businesses, or decorate a bag before you start the hunt (see details below).

2) Pick Up a Passport

We’re providing adult chaperones with a “passport” list of clues so you can help in the hunt. Get your passport stamped by 15 or more businesses for a chance to win family prizes. Pick up your passport at Phoenix — a new event space located near the Main Library at 2315 Lincoln Ave.

3) Look for Window Banners

Look for special Downtown Easter Egg Hunt banners in the windows — this is your clue that a treat for kids is waiting inside.

4) Receive a Treat

Kids receive a treat inside participating businesses. Adults, don’t forget to get your passport stamped at each stop you visit! You’ll need to visit 15 or more businesses to be eligible for the prize drawings.

5) Enter to Win Family Prizes

After you have collected at least 15 stamps, return your completed passport to be entered in the free drawings. Winners will be drawn at 2:15pm — no need to be present.

Don’t miss these other Family Activities: 

Decorate a Treat Bag: Instead of bringing a basket, kids can decorate a bag before their hunt begins. Complimentary bags and supplies will be available at Phoenix (2315 Lincoln Ave).

Meet the Easter Bunny: A photo opportunity with the Easter Bunny will make this hunt even more special. Stop by Daisy’s (1347 Park Street) to meet “Martin the Bunny” and take a photo with the kids.

In-Store Easter Egg Hunts: Some of the shops will be hiding prizes for kids inside their businesses. Be sure to include Lost City Antiques, Toy Safari, and Bead Inspirations in your list of stops.

Hop on down to Downtown Alameda on April 15 to enjoy the search for bunny banners and“egg-stra” special Easter treats. For more details, go to

Pick up your passport at 2315 Lincoln Ave — and don’t forget to return the completed passport by 2:00pm for a chance to win an assortment of fabulous prizes.
