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: www.facebook.com/DowntownAlameda
The 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.
