Based on the community’s enjoyment of 2022’s egg-citing spring event for youngsters, The Mill District General Store is hosting the “2nd Annual Great Mill District Egg Hunt,” on Saturday April 8th from 10am-3pm.
Lavender the Funny Bunny will be there and is excited to meet and be photographed with kids and adults alike. The event will take place in front of the Mill District General Store, located off North Square at 91 Cowls Road, North Amherst. Three egg-hunting sessions are scheduled from morning to early afternoon.
“We saw a great turnout in 2022, with families enjoying the day,” said WD Cowls’ Senior Communications Director Tim O’Brien. “This year, to make it easier for the littler ones, we’re creating three egg hunt areas with three separate rounds, plus we’re tripling the number of hidden eggs, and including additional fun activities.”
To complement the egg hunt, organizers have arranged photo-ops with Lavender, The Funny Bunny, and an opportunity to meet live rabbits. Youngsters will also have the chance to find one special Golden Eggs each round, with a $25 General Store gift card inside. Participation is limited to the first 40 kids registered in each of the three sessions, which will be held at 10am, noon and 2pm.
“We’re delighted to have the Egg Hunt returning again this year,” said Cowls’ Vice President of Real Estate & Community Development Arthur Haskins. “In addition to many community events, we have lots to offer on a daily basis. Visitors love the designer fashions at The Closet; fine food, wine and beer at Provisions; art supplies, toys, and home goods at The Mill District General Store; distinctive local art in the Mill District Local Art Gallery; they rave about the library; Balanced Birch Studio; Graze Craze; The Lift Salon; Amherst House of Pizza; The Barber Shop; Shine Laundry; and the Big Basket International Foods Market. Plus we have two playgrounds, and Cisco’s Café. Folks could spend a whole day here, and you just might!”
