It’s a Leprechaun Hunt!
When: Friday, March 13th from 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Where: The Community Church, 7239 Thornapple River Dr. SE, Ada
What: Share in some St. Patrick’s Day fun by hunting for leprechauns hiding around the Village. Sneaky leprechauns will be hidden high and low – think doorways, planters, trees, business signs – the possibilities are endless! Stop at The Community Church to pick up a clue sheet to help you get started on your hunt.
You are highly encouraged to take fun photos with the leprechauns you spot along the way. Post them to Facebook or Instagram using #AdaVillage. Let’s see how creative you can get!
Once you’ve found your share of leprechauns (no minimum), head back to The Community Church to share your photos and enjoy some refreshments. Each child who participates will receive a fun St. Patrick’s Day prize bag.
