Downtown Egg Hunt was a Hoppin’ Success

More than 400 kids  participated with their families in the Annual Downtown Easter Egg Hunt last Saturday, April 20. The sidewalks were packed as kids ran from business to business in search of the next treat. More than 30 member businesses participated in the hunt. Signs in windows and doors marked where children could enter to find a treat or fun activity.

Martin the Easter Bunny, who was provided by Daisy’s gift store, made his way around Downtown Alameda and was certainly the hit of the day. Children and families lined up to take a picture with him, and many followed his adventures on social media as he visited local businesses engaging in various adventures throughout the day.

The Downtown Alameda Business Association (DABA) is grateful to its community partner, Kiwanis Club of Alameda, who provided volunteers, as well as PHOENIX, where there were family friendly activities and bag decorations. The Hunt is a popular community event, and DABA thanks everyone who participated.

There are lots of friendly services, great food and drink establishments, charming shops and fun things to do in Downtown Alameda! Learn more about the businesses at
