Exciting prizes and fun for all highlight The Chronicle Times' Fifth Annual Great Easter Egg Hunt that begins on Monday, March 26 and runs until April 6 - or until the eggs are found.
A Gold egg and Silver egg will be hidden within the Cherokee City limits (excluding private property). Clues in this year's contest will be funner than ever, and we mean fun, with new clues that will be featured in The Chronicle Times and participating retailers to help you down the bunny trail and, hopefully, to one of the eggs.
There will be a clue printed in the Chronicle Times every day for the Golden Egg, along with bonus clues on Tuesday, March 27 and April 3 at Carey's Furniture.
Clues for the Silver Egg will be printed in the Chronicle Times every day, along with bonus clues found at the Silver Egg sponsor businesses on Thursday March 29 and Thursday April 5.
Any eggs that are found must be returned to The Chronicle Times office at 111 South Second Street to claim the prize. If the eggs haven't been found by the end of the Great Easter Egg Hunt, the Chronicle Times will publish all clues, including the last one, in the Chronicle Times on April 6.
The clues will be published up to and including the final day until the hidden Gold and Silver eggs are found.
Among the great prizes is the Gold Egg winner - $1000 in furniture from Carey's Furniture in downtown Cherokee. The Silver Egg winner receives approximately $340 in gift certificates from participating Cherokee businesses, which includes a one-year subscription to the Chronicle Times.
The Great Easter Egg Hunt is open to anyone except employees of The Chronicle Times and Carey's Furniture and their immediate families. No purchase is necessary. Decision of the judges is final.
