First Ever Gobble de Art Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt

Hi everyone! We are so excited to announce that we will be hosting our first ever Gobble de Art Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt throughout the month of March. Starting at the beginning of March we will begin placing an egg under a specific Hokie Bird statue around Blacksburg. If you find the egg, you will receive a prize that can be redeemed at the Blacksburg Partnership office. The prizes are generously provided by local businesses in the Blacksburg area.

To participate in the scavenger egg hunt, first follow and like our Instagram and Facebook accounts. Reminders will be posted on our Facebook page, but the clues will be updated in real time on our Instagram page once the egg is placed. The clues will lead you to the specific bird that has the egg. If you need help locating the birds, use our online map.

We have a few rules for participation. We have several prizes provided, so we will be doing the scavenger hunt throughout the month with different birds around town. The first person to find the egg will be the winner of the prize. Additionally, when you find the egg, take a picture of yourself in front of the Hokie Bird and tag Gobble de Art in your picture on Instagram. Follow the directions found on the note inside the egg to pick-up the prize at the Blacksburg Partnership which is located on 506 South Main Street. Call our office ahead of time at 540-443-2008 before redeeming your prize. We will get a picture of you at our office with the prize. You will not be able to redeem your prize without doing these steps. Furthermore, we are only allowing one prize per person over the course of our Easter egg scavenger hunt. Once you find an egg, you will redeem a prize, but cannot redeem another prize later in the scavenger hunt. The search will be limited to our Blacksburg flock.

We hope you are as excited as we are about our first ever egg hunt! Stay tuned for more details closer to the start of the scavenger hunt. Follow our Facebook and Instagram page to keep up to date!
