Stratford Festival Easter Egg Hunt — The Easter Beagle! I
Annual Easter egg hunt – with a twist! The Easter Bunny has taken a vacation and our Easter Beagle, Snoopy, will be hiding eggs all over the city of Stratford on Saturday, April 7, 2012.
You could find one of 50 vouchers good for a pair of tickets to You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown*! Just take your voucher to the Festival Theatre Box Office to redeem your tickets, only one voucher per household! All 50 eggs will be hidden by 10 a.m. and the Box Office is open until 5 p.m., so that gives you, your family and friends seven hours to search the city! But remember: this special offer is on for one day only, so you must redeem your vouchers by 5 p.m.
We’ll be leaving you hints as to where the tickets are hidden; on April 7, watch ourFacebook page and our Twitter feeds @stratfest and @stratfestchris to help you in your search (use the hashtag #ssfCharlie). Let us know what you find! Share photos of your hunt on our Facebook page or on our Twitter feeds… and see if you can catch our Easter Beagle!
