Residents and visitors can look forward to lots of family fun this Easter, as the annual Bunny Hop returns to Knutsford on Saturday 20th April.
Since its launch in 2013, the event has become a firm fixture in Knutsford’s event calendar and grows in popularity each year.
Knutsford Town Council is leading on the event organisation this year, working in partnership with sponsorship from local businesses.
As in previous years, the event will see families scouring Knutsford’s streets to find 9 bunnies which will be hidden in various town centre locations.
In a change to previous years, families write down the letter each bunny will be ‘holding’ on a special entry form.
When they have collected all 9 letters, they re-arrange them to spell a popular word associated with Easter before posting the entry into the post box at Knutsford Heritage Centre.
A draw will then take place after Easter (with prizes donated by the business community).
A large number of the town’s restaurants, cafes, bars and shops will have ‘We are Bunny Hop Friendly’ posters in their windows.
Many will be joining in the fun by handing out Easter treats and balloons and dressing up!
Postcards will be delivered to all local schools as well as being available on the day.
The event runs from 10am to 4pm and includes all the main streets in Knutsford town centre: King Street, Princess Street, Regent Street and Minshull Street.
There are no road closures, so parents are urged to supervise children at all times.
