Upstart Hastings City Bunny Adventure - Easter

We are inviting kids between the ages of 5-13 years to participate in the Upstart Hastings City Bunny Adventure, which will be focused in and around the Hastings city centre.

We have over 20 stores in Hastings CBD who are participating in this event, and all of them will have an Easter bunny sticker hidden on the front of their store window. From April 1, kids can pick up an entry card from any one of these participating stores or at the Hastings i-Site. All they need to do is find one of the stores in Hastings City with the bunny sticker, and head inside to get a stamp on their card.

Once the kids have filled up the card up with 12 stamps from different participating stores, (no purchase necessary), they make sure their contact information is filled in on the back of the card and they hand it over to the last store keeper to claim a small prize. All of the prizes are sponsored by Upstart Magazine, a local publication which is produced with the help of primary and intermediate school children and their teachers throughout New Zealand.

Every completed entry gets a prize, plus all of the completed entry cards go into the draw for a Games Pack worth over $200 (plus runner up prizes) thanks to Upstart Magazine. The major prize will be drawn at the Harcourts Hastings City Easter Night Market on April 18th, during the first week of the school holidays.

 Another free and family focused event we are holding, in conjunction with Hastings District Libraries, is the Upstart Hastings City Bunny Hop. This will be held on Thursday April 11th, from 4pm to 6pm in Civic Square, Hastings. This is a free family friendly event with lots of interactive and hands on activities for kids, including a colouring in competition, face painting, make your own bunny ears, egg and spoon races, an Easter rock hunt (and more!). There will be lots of spot prizes sponsored by Upstart Magazine, and every child who finds an Easter Rock will get a free copy of the Upstart Magazine, while stocks last. 

 The Easter Bunny will also be out and about throughout Hastings City after 3.30pm handing out Easter Eggs and spot prizes.
