The Marblehead Peninsula Lions Club will host an Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt this year in lieu of its traditional Easter Egg Hunt, announced Lions President Tod Kelly. The special kids Scavenger Hunt will focus on six area merchants who have been given a basket of 100 eggs to distribute to youngsters on Saturday morning, March 27.
The host businesses will give each visiting child a specific color Easter Egg. The kids, accompanied by parents or an adult, will set off to “collect the rainbow” by visiting each business to get all six different colored eggs. Each egg will be filled with candy and a raffle ticket.
No purchase is necessary to receive an egg and it is not necessary to collect eggs from all the participating businesses, which are The Marblehead Galley, The Marblehead Soap Company, Martha and Molly’s, The Pink Perch, Teriyaki Designs and Village Pro Hardware.
After the Saturday Scavenger Hunt, event co-chairs Heidi Gast and Marla Hirt of the Marblehead Lions Club will draw one winning ticket from each participating business at 2 p.m. The drawing will be held via Facebook. Each winning child will receive a $20 Walmart gift card, and the winner’s parents will receive a $10 gift certificate to the local business.
