Old Town's annual 'Hop Around Old Town' events kicks off today and many kids will be looking for that special egg.
According to Historic Manassas, Inc., participants who make a purchase at participating shops will get to select an egg from the merchant’s basket. All eggs will contain a sweet Easter treat, but some have a prize for a special gift at a participating shop.
"You can get an egg in my shop that entitles you to a gift at one of the other shops," said owner of 'The Things I Love' Joanne Wunderly in an email this week. "Then just hop on over and get your prize. This is a really fun event. I hope you can join us. It's supposed to be a beautiful week."
Runner-up prizes include large stuffed bunnies. There is also a grand prize of a giant over-sized stuffed bunny, according to HMI's website.
Look for the bunny pennant in participating shop windows and have fun. The event starts Tuesday, April 3 and lasts through April 7 and takes place during regulary store hours.
Here is a list of partcipating vendors:
Creative Brush Studios
Echoes at the Manassas Museum
Opera House Gift and Gourmet
