This week we are going big highlighting three incredible women. You will not meet folks that are more passionate about our town and protecting our community. We can not say enough to thank these women for the countless hours and sacrifices that each of them have made. We are incredibly proud of Teri and Anita for their dedication and hard work leading Fayette County’s response to the Covid pandemic. They continue to work daily to educate, empower and help protect our community and they continue to lead and guide vaccine efforts with some of the highest rates in the country. Maura Kistler is a staple in the Fayetteville community and owner of Water Stone Outdoors. We could go on and on about this incredible lady and all the initatives she has spearheaded for our community. Thank you to all of these fabulous ladies!

Egg Hunts

Fayetteville’s Egg Hunt

Saturday, March 27, Fayetteville Town Park

The Fayetteville Convention & Visitors Bureau is hosting the Fayetteville Easter Egg Hunt. Join us for a fun-filled day of egg hunting in Fayetteville! The egg hunt will be free for all kids. We ask that you bring a basket or bag to gather your eggs. Kids will be separated into appropriate age groups for the hunt with limited group sizes. You must pre-register for the egg hunts so that we can follow COVID Guidelines with limited participants in each hunt. We ask that participants(2years+) and volunteers wear masks while participating unless you have a condition that prevents you from wearing a mask. There will be a 10 egg limit for each participant. 

In an effort to make the egg hunt more accessible we will be hosting an all-inclusive hunt before the main festivities. No one is excluded from attending the main hunt and no one is required to attend only the accessible portion, it is just an added option for those that may find the hunt more enjoyable with a smaller crowd and less sensory overload. We have made modifications for this hunt with areas that will be wheelchair accessible and we will have a number of beeping eggs available. Participants will receive a color card and will be on a mission to find 10 eggs that match their assigned color. For those that are high risk or do not feel comfortable, we also have the option for goodie bag signups. Participants can receive take-home bags that can be picked up at the visitor center. If your child has food allergies candy eggs can be traded in for one prize from the prize table at the end of the hunt.

The hunt will take place at the Fayetteville Town Park 330 Park Drive Fayetteville, WV 25840

We will meet at Shelter #2 between the basketball court and playground.

10:30 AM – All-Inclusive Hunt

12:15 PM 6 & and Under Hunt

It is important that you register under the time and hunt you plan to attend. Registration open on March 1st.

But the other animals warn him the city is no place for agriculture. A chicken’s home, they say, is on the farm. When Stu accidentally finds himself on a truck headed toward the bright lights and tall buildings, he decides to prove just how citified farming can be. Cost: $16.95BOOKSTORE EXPLORER: WEST VIRGINIA is a celebration of the Mountain State’s independent bookstores and their place in the fabric of Appalachia.
