2nd Annual Found It! Chatham Rabbit Hunt

PITTSBORO, NC – Main Street Pittsboro invites everyone to downtown Pittsboro on Saturday, April 9 from 10:30am-4pm to participate in the 2nd Annual Found It! Chatham Rabbit Hunt. Six embellished rabbit statues will be hidden outside along Hillsboro Street and in the immediate vicinity. The first 25 visitors to the Welcome Center at 37 Hillsboro Street who show a photo of themselves with 4 of the 6 statues will receive a voucher worth $10 at one of the participating downtown businesses*. All participants will be entered into a drawing to win one of the rabbit statues during a raffle at 4pm on Saturday, April 16th. 

In acknowledgment of Pittsboro’s thriving creative culture, the 6 rabbit statues will be embellished by these local artists Theresa Arico, Emily Weinstein, Nadine Zenobi, Darcy Szeremi, Emma Skurnick, and Ashlie Campbell.

Additional raffle tickets to win the custom rabbit statues will be available for $5 each at the Welcome Center. Proceeds of ticket sales will go to Main Street Pittsboro, a 501(c)3 non-profit agency.

“Everyone had great fun last year with this event when we debuted it at the kick off of Chatham 250.  Main Street Pittsboro is delighted to again highlight a historic aspect of Pittsboro and Chatham County, celebrate our creative community, encourage vitality in downtown Pittsboro and provide support for our businesses,” said Main Street Pittsboro’s chair Maria Parker-Lewis. “The choice of a rabbit as an icon for the event refers to a chapter in our history from 1880–1920 when Chatham County was the source for the ‘Chatham Rabbit’, a delicacy served in the finest hotels and rail cars all along the East Coast.”
