Cranford Gnome-Hunt Contest 2023

Downtown Cranford partnered up with the Green Thumb Garden Club to create this fun Valentine’s Day event. But you don’t have to wait until Valentine’s Day to participate. This gnome-hunt can happen any time you visit the downtown area between now and the 14th.

First, download and print out an official Gnome-Hunt entry form here. Then, take it with you when you go downtown. When you spot one of the five official gnome displays, write its location next to the appropriate gnome “gname”. Once you locate all five gnomes, email your completed form to the Downtown Cranford office. A winner will be picked at random from all entries received by the end of the day on February 14th, 2023.
