The Great Ptarmi Hunt 2022

April 17 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Round up your family and head out on the Frame Lake Trail Sunday morning for The Great Ptarmi Hunt.

In celebration of its 10th year in business, and Janet Pacey becoming the business’ sole owner, the team at Signed will be hiding 100 plush Ptarmis in the bushes, trees and snowbanks around the Frame Lake Trail, from City Hall to the Hospital, the Co-Op and the Legislative Assembly.

Ptarmi is the brainchild of artist and owner Janet Pacey. This silly little bird wears white after Labour Day, can never seem to navigate traffic and shows up in the strangest of locations – even as an astronaut in space!

Families are invited to hit the trail at 9am on Sunday, April 17, to find a Ptarmi for themselves! To ensure we spread joy to as many families as possible, we ask that each family only take one Ptarmi home.

Each plushie will be numbered. Successful Ptarmi hunters are invited to come by the Signed store, above True Value Hardware, with their number to pick up a free pair of Ptarmi-sized glasses. The store is open Monday to Friday 9am-4pm.

Share photos from your family hike and hunt with the hashtag #greatptarmihunt.
