Easter in downtown Staunton – 2012

This year, all the action is happening Saturday, April 7.

From 10AM to noon, it’s the annual Eggstravaganza at Gypsy Hill with egg hunts, face painting and entertainment. For all the details, including start times for each egg hunt, please see the Staunton Parks & Rec website.

Also from 10AM to noon, it’s the annual Hop Along the Bunny Trail in downtown Staunton. Bring your basket and hop from store to store to collect special treats from the downtown merchants — including Pufferbellies, of course.

Happy Easter, everyone!


Hop Along the Bunny Trail – Easter in downtown Staunton, 2010

Hey, it’s almost that time again! Easter is approaching, and it even kind of feels like it with this great weather we’ve been having. Anyway, the Staunton Downtown Development Association and Staunton Recreation & Parks are hosting their famous Easter event again this year, and you’re invited. There are a lot of different parts to the event, and you can do as many or few or them as you like.

Saturday, April 3

From 10AM to 12noon, kids can hunt for Easter eggs at Gypsy Hill Park.

From 11AM to 12noon, kids and grownups can ride the free trolley from the Park to Byers Street Bistro downtown. At the Bistro, kids will get treats from the SDDA and a coupon for a $3 lunch special at the Bistro.

From 12noon to 1PM, kids can visit with the Easter Bunny while they eat lunch at Byers Street Bistro.

From 10AM to 1PM, kids can “hop” around from store to store downtown, collecting candy and treats from all the stores displaying an egg poster in their windows. Pufferbellies will be giving away the finest and most delicious treats, as per usual. 🙂

Spring is coming! Spring is coming!

It’s been a long, cold, snowy winter. But ya know what? Spring is coming. How can we be so sure? Bunnies and lambies and chickies are starting to show up at Pufferbellies! We’ll be putting out a big Easter/Spring display later this week. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at a few of our cutest new arrivals.

Downtown Staunton Easter Event on Saturday, April 11, 2009

Again this year, the Staunton Downtown Development Association and Staunton Recreation and Parks are hosting “Hop Along the Bunny Trail” in downtown Staunton.

It’s a pretty neat event with three major components; you can do all three, or just one or two.

First, from 10am to 12noon, there’s an Easter egg hunt at Gypsy Hill Park. From 11am – 1pm, the Staunton trolley will be transformed into the Bunny Expresss — ride it from the Park to downtown and visit with the Easter Bunny himself (herself? You know, it’s kind of unclear). The Bunny Express will drop you off at Byers Street Bistro, where kids can enjoy a specially-priced lunch. Finally, from 11am – 1pm, most downtown stores will be handing out candy and treats to kids who “hop along the bunny trail” — just look for the big eggs outside each store. Of course, Pufferbellies will be leading the way with the most delicious and plentiful treats.

The SDDA website has some more details for you here. Hope we’ll see you Saturday!

Bad, Bad Bunnies, part 2


Name: Chester
Accused of: Carrot theft
Bond set at: $12.99

Chester is a bad, bad bunny, but we’re confident he can be reformed. All he needs is a stable home, some kids to play with, and a plentiful supply of crunchy veg.
