For the Family

The Great Narberth Leprechaun Hunt

Saturday March 10th 1pm – 4pm
Located in downtown Narberth at the corner of Haverford and Forrest Ave.

The Narberth Business Associations has been hosting this popular scavenger hunt since 2007.  It gives children their own day to celebrate and “wear the green” every year on the Saturday before St Patrick’s Day.

Kids start by going to the “Blarney” Booth at the corner of Haverford and Forrest Ave, to get a game card with clues and an empty black plastic pot-o’-gold.  Next, they search all over town, with the help of their parents, and try to find the ten hidden leprechauns! Each time they find one, they get a golden chocolate coin to put into their pot. Finally, once they’ve found all ten leprechauns and have 10 coins, they return to the booth for their prize, which is a shiny golden U.S. dollar coin! This is truly a blast for the kids and parents alike, and it is totally free! This is a family event brought to you by the Narberth Business Association and its members.
