A bear sighting in Lambertville may bring good news this season.
Thirteen Lambertville merchants have banded together to produce a scavenger hunt. There are small, adorable polar bears at 13 locations throughout Lambertville, ranging from retail shops to restaurants. Once you find them, you can enter a drawing to win a basketful of gift certificates and your own bear.
Homestead Market, at 262 North Main Street, is the kick-off point. You will find Magic the Bear there and receive your first clue. However, the hunt is designed to be circular, so you can start wherever you find your first bear. On Saturdays and Sundays, Magic comes to life at the Lambertville Station, where she hands out candy canes.
Then, just follow the clues from place to place and enjoy visiting your friendly Lambertville merchants. Some bears are positioned in the windows of the businesses and some are hidden inside. The clues (in rhyme) should guide you to the correct place.
“We all need a little magic right now,” said Amy Coss, owner of Sojourner and hunt originator, “Together we came up with an idea of how to spread Magic all around town and have some outdoor and socially distant fun. We hope that families enjoy looking for magic and find it with our friendly shopkeepers.”
The hunt will be open from Friday, November 27, until Sunday, December 29, 2020, at 5 p.m. When you complete the hunt, you can enter a drawing to win a Basket of Lambertville Magic. Just scan the QR code located at every participating merchant and enter your name and email address, and a winner will be chosen randomly to win a basket full of gift certificates and your own Magic the Bear.
Participating merchants are Homestead Market, Humble Café and Bakery, Lambertville Trading Company, Lambertville Station Restaurant, Meta Café, Sojourner, Perch, Union Jack, Blue Raccoon, Le Chocolate Box, Savour, A Mano, and 13 North of Normal. For more information visit bit.ly/2UzfKNh
