SUNDAY, FREE: Don't Miss Our First LOVE LOCAL Treasure Hunt

Be our valentine and join us for Elizabeth Street Garden’s first LOVE LOCAL Treasure Hunt from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 8, come snow or come shine. Prize drawings at 6:30 p.m. This FREE event is open to the public.

Hunt for NoLIta and Little Italy neighborhood shops and restaurants floating green balloons outside and complete fun activities inside to enter grand prize drawings for treasure — more than $3,000 worth of amazing booty donated by 46 participating businesses. Prizes include gift certificates, dinners out, personal services, clothing, jewelry … to name a few. The more establishments visited, the more chances to win! Peasant, 194 Elizabeth St., will host prize drawing finale at 6:30 p.m. and provide light bites and refreshments.

“With LOVE LOCAL Treasure Hunt, we are thrilled to bring together elements of our neighborhood that make it so special — the small businesses, residents and Elizabeth Street Garden,” said Emily Hellström, Garden volunteer and event coordinator. “This event not only raises awareness for the Garden, but also invites us all to come together to build community and celebrate the unique treasure that our neighborhood truly is.”

In addition to their contribution of drawing prizes, participating businesses have pledged to give 10 percent of purchases made cooperatively with the LOVE LOCAL Treasure Hunt event to support Friends of Elizabeth Street Garden.
