Chocolate and gift cards up for grabs at the CORE's 12-day Easter egg hunt

Mar 20 2018, 4:49 pm

One of Calgary’s largest easter egg hunts is well under way at the CORE Shopping Centre.

From Monday, March 19 to Saturday, March 31, shoppers will have the chance to discover hidden Easter eggs throughout the centre’s stores and communal areas.

Hunters looking for a leg-up on the competition will need to keep up to date on the clues provided by the CORE’s Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Successful participants will find vouchers for gift cards, gift baskets, and swag that can be claimed at stores within the centre or at guest services.

Along with the scattering of smaller prizes, the CORE is also offering the chance to win the grand prize: a 25 lb. chocolate bunny named Charles. Though you won’t find him in any of the plastic eggs throughout the mall.

Instead, anyone hoping to take Charles home for an Easter feast will need to post a picture of themselves with their found eggs on Instagram, tag @COREshopping, and use the hashtag #COREEaster to enter into the draw.

If you haven’t actually found any eggs, no worries! You can also enter by taking a photo with Charles at the Purdys store and tagging @COREshopping and @purdyschocolatier, with the hashtag #COREEaster.

“The best part about the #COREEaster hunt is that it brings Calgarians together from all over the city including families, business professionals, and even young millennials, you’d be surprised at who comes to claim the daily prizes!” said Allison Onyett, Marketing Director for the CORE, in a release.

“We’re so pleased to host #COREEaster for the third year and invite all to enjoy a little competitive fun.”

Here are some examples of the clues offered daily on the social media accounts – happy hunting!
