The event will be held on April 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Ticket holders will receive an Easter basket which they can take to more than a dozen participating businesses. At each stop they will receive a candy treat and some surprises along the way.

Participating businesses who have signed up so far include Scenic Way Gifts and Art Glass Studio, Christmas Treasures, Wind Chime Shop, Gills Family Pharmacy, Inn and Spa at Cedar Falls, Pumpkin Ridge Quilts and Repair, Vinton County Floral, Weavers Tree and Antiques, Zaleski Candleworks, Equestrian Ridge Riding Stable, Flutes and Peppercorns Mobile Kitchen (The Gourmet Peddler), the Vinton County Historical and Genealogical Society and Hocking Hills Scenic Air Tours

Tickets cost $20 each and include the basket, candy, discounts and a voucher for lunch from Chef Mary’s Gourmet Peddler. The box lunch will include potato soup, chicken salad, fruit salad, drink and dessert and will be available from noon to 2 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased with Visa or Mastercard at Scenic Way Gifts and Art Glass Studio, the Wind Chime Shop and Christmas Treasures. Cash or check patrons can purchase tickets at the Vinton County Visitors’ Center. Call 596-1913 for information or to purchase tickets over the phone.
