Though it may not exactly be spring weather yet, the Old Town Kemptville BIA Events Committee is well on its way to planning two spring events.
The first event is the second coming of the Old Town Kemptville BIA Trivia Night. This test of memory, knowledge, and patience is coming up on Friday March 19 at 7:30pm. In keeping with last year’s event, the coveted OTK BIA Trivia Night championship belt is once again on the line. Teams of four are encouraged to register for this virtual contest by emailing their team name and names of team members to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is first come, first served, and there are only a few spots left. The winning team will not only win bragging rights, but also a great prize and the right to wear the title belt!
For Easter this year, we want to build on the fun that we had with the Pumpkin Trail at Hallowe’en this past fall. Lots of people enjoyed carving and decorating pumpkins and entering them in our contest. Using the same formula, we want to invite everyone to make and decorate their own Easter eggs. Whether you make it out of paper mache, or styrofoam, or wood, or any other material, it’s entirely up to you. Just make sure that you make it so that it won’t fall apart if it gets wet.
We’ll display the eggs all along both sides of Prescott Street on Saturday, April 3, the day before Easter Sunday, so that everyone can drive, walk, or cycle by and check them out. We’ll bring in our celebrity judges again, and you could win some cool prizes. Get your family together and have an egg-making party! Tell your neighbours and have a little friendly neighbourhood competition! We’re even going to have a local business category that any business in North Grenville can enter!
Egg drop-off time will be Friday night April 2, from 7pm to 9pm, and Saturday morning, April 3, from 9am-11am, at the Bodhi Tree Yoga Centre at 28 Prescott Street. The eggs will be displayed on Prescott Street in Downtown Kemptville on Saturday, April 3, from noon until 9pm.
Stay tuned to our Old Town Kemptville BIA Facebook page and local media for more info in the weeks ahead. For any questions, just email us at email@example.com.
Now put those creative egg-making hats on and get crackin’!
