The contest is open to families, children, and adults of all ages!
2) Name the Rabbits! Show us that you have completed the hunt by filling out the online form below with the NAMES of all 9 rabbits (Names of rabbits may be found on their “nametags”) & the name of Destination #10.
3) Prizes! The first 24 people to successfully name all of the rabbits will win artful prize at the last stop on the hunt. *while supplies last
GRAND PRIZE! ALL of the entrants with the correct rabbit names will be entered into a drawing to win $100!
Here are your instructions & Clues below:
Rabbits have hopped all over town,
collect for us their names and write them all down.
Find carrots with clues to compile on the way,
to find out the place of the final destination this fine day!
Enter the rabbit names on our website
and you’ll be entered to win $100–that’s right!
First 25 to find the final location
Will find a special prize for their speed at this sport
All who find that final destination
Will get to do chalk art,
So let’s hope it is sunny!
Easter’s coming! Its already here!
What a happy hopeful day!
Time to celebrate, time to cheer,
And sing as you go on your way!
Look for carrots and for bunnies
Hiding around the town,
You may think it’s kind of funny,
But it is true; they do abound!
You may walk or you may ride
All in Newport shire.
Perhaps in windows or outside,
Listen to the clues you hear
In all the little rhymes and clues
You’ll get hints as to where to go.
There are prizes , yes it’s true,
So hurry and don’t be slow!
Go to the place that we all know
As Our Hometown Bank!
Where we save and borrow low.
It has the highest rank!
Walk around the outside,
You will see a bunny’s backside
Almost hidden there!
Newport has a lovely prize,
A green place for us all,
To gather when our needs arise
To use in summer or in fall,
In spring or winter too
And at one end there is a place
Where concerts sing out true,
A rabbit waits there to play and to race!
A wonderful surprise popped up
Suddenly one day,
A place where children right nearby
Could run and climb and play!
The Town of Newport put it there
At an end of town
Where there was no structure just for them
And now children playing there abound!
**Rabbit #3 hopped away… his name is Salvador.
Pretty much from everywhere
You can see a tall steeple,
Atop a brick building there,
A place for all people
Find a bunny hiding near a step
You’ll see her there in full sight
Can’t find her yet?
Look where she fits tight!
Ask your grandparents if they recall a place
Where people stayed the night.
At one time it was an elegant space
And a theater with marquee bright.
Now the buildings are all gone,
It is now a flat paved space,
Here you will find a rabbit waiting for you to play along,
Tucked by gardens and trees, right off this Main Street parking place
There’s a beautiful church made out of rock
You will see as you round the green.
Trim is red and a story walk
That walking by you may have seen.
Go to the front door
And look around there
You’ll see your bunny
Tucked in pretty and fair!
A place where many children go
In summer and after school
To run and play and go to show
Their good sportsmanship! So cool!
Boot camp and pickup ball
There can be found, kids aren’t
The only ones to benefit from sport’s call.
There you will find a rabbit tucked in
On the edge of the wall
Its hide and seek game it might win!
Look oh-so-carefully and its name you can call!
There is a new business on Main Street,
Its location all fancy and new,
Where anyone who has been injured
Can get help there to renew!
Professionals teach people to move muscles around
Tucked in the front window, a rabbit is resting,
After a workout and treatment when injury was found
After jumping and hoping in pre-Easter festing!
If you go to a concert or a play
You’ll find the best place around
Where lots of people enter and say
How lucky to have this right in town.
There are two ways to get into this gem of a place
You could go up steps or up a ramp to get inside,
One in the back and one on its face.
Try the back stage door to find where bunny hides!
The Carrots you find at the other destinations will give you clues to guide you to the final destination!
Find all the Rabbits?
