Don't go to Moore Square if you're planning on going to Raleigh Easter, the large egg hunt in downtown Raleigh on Saturday.
The event has been moved to Halifax Mall in the state government complex. The mall is a block north of the state legislative building (which is across the street from the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences on Jones Street). The mall is bounded by Lane, Salisbury and Wilmington streets. Click here for a map.
According to Vintage21 Church, which has organized the hunt for the last four years, Moore Square has been temporarily closed for storm clean up. Organizers said in a press release that they hope the event will provide some relief to those in the midst of cleaning up from last Saturday's tornadoes.
Raleigh Easter is from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Read an earlier post for details about some other changes for this year, including lots more eggs. The hunt is for kids ages 12 and under.
