Get St. Patrick’s Day started early with this free family event.   The tenth annual Great Narberth Leprechaun Hunt is being held in downtown Narberth on Saturday, March 10, 2018, from 1pm – 4pm.  This free family event is a scavenger hunt where kids search all over town to find ten leprechauns.  Children start the hunt by getting a game card and an empty pot o’ gold from the booth at the corner of Forrest and Haverford Avenues.  They get treats as they find the leprechauns, who are hiding in shops all over town.  Once they’ve found all ten, they return to the booth for a St. Paddy’s Day prize.  The hunt lasts until 4pm or while prizes last.
