Residents planning to attend The Colony’s Spring Eggstravaganza might find more than just Easter eggs.
To promote the upcoming Volunteers of America LPGA Texas Classic, the city has planned a couple of special treats for patrons of their annual Easter event and, beginning in April, some of the more adventurous residents in town.
The Colony Convention and Visitor’s Bureau (CVB) has cooked up two giveaways, one via a drawing and another through a citywide scavenger hunt.
The CVB team will set up shop at the Spring Eggstravaganza Egg Hunt at The Colony’s Mobile Information Center. Patrons can stop by and select an Easter egg from the “big bowl.” Lauren Simpson, sales and marketing specialist, said the eggs will contain a numbered ticket that will be put into a random drawing to be held at the end of Eggstravaganza.
The winner will be contacted by the CVB staff via basic information (name, phone number, email) submitted at the time of first picking an egg, and will receive a ticket for one day of admission to the LPGA tournament. Simpson said the winner does not have to be present to claim their prize.
Scavengers are encouraged to make sure their smartphones are fully charged and to follow the CVB on their social media pages.
Beginning in April, the bureau will kick off the #VisitTheColony Texas Classic Scavenger Hunt. The CVB will post its first QR code to its Facebook and Twitter pages that will explain the rules of the game and give hunters the first clue. Subsequent clues will lead participants to a secret location in The Colony where scavengers will find a hidden QR code to scan.
According to Simpson, the hunt will end at a mystery location where winners can claim their prizes. First-, second- and third-place awards will be given to the first, second and third scavengers/teams to reach the final secret location.
Prizes will be announced at a later date, Simpson said.
