For the Kidslep

Schuykill Canal Associations Annual
St. Patty’s Day Hike and Treasure Hunt 

March 20th 1-4pm

Pickering Creek Inn, 37 Bridge St., Phoenixville, Pa. 19460

Hikers will start the afternoon off at 1:00 PM meeting in the parking lot behind the Pickering Creek Inn, at the end of Bridge Street in Phoenixville.  The group will walk from Phoenixville, across the Schuylkill River and down the towpath to Lock 60.

Once reaching the Lock 60 picnic grove, children of all ages can join in with a Treasure Hunt.  Gold coins will be scattered throughout the field to be gathered by the children; the coins are then turned in for prizes at the Locktender’s House after the hunt.

Meadowlark, a well-known duo – Jansen Wendell and Elisa Lang – will perform Irish music for all to enjoy inside the house.

And, don’t miss the lock opening at 3 PM, weather permitting!  A steady rain will cancel the hike and treasure hunt; the Locktender’s Open House will still be held.

Great Narberth Leprechaun Hunt

Saturday, March 12, 2016 – from 1pm to 4pm
(*The Hunt continues until 4pm or until prizes run out)

In this free family event in downtown Narberth, kids search the town trying to win a prize by finding ten hidden Leprechauns.

The NBA “Blarney” Booth at the corner of Haverford and Forrest Ave is the starting point, where kids get a game card with clues and an empty black plastic pot-o’-gold.  Then the search continues through the town for ten hidden leprechauns.  Once they’ve found all the leprechauns, and have all ten chocolate coins, the kids return to the NBA booth for their prize –  a shiny golden U.S. Dollar coin!
