New! Fun Family Scavenger Hunt on Get Out and Play Day

It’s something new for the entire family; our first-ever Old-Town Scavenger Hunt!

We’ll have two paths going through Old Town. Choose your path. Follow the clues. Answer the questions. Fill out the form. Win prizes. It’s that easy!

How to play:

  1. Visit each location at either route listed on the inside of this booklet.
  2. Answer the question(s) and write down your answers on a piece of paper
    (or on the booklet if you can find the room).
  3. Upload photos to either Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. Tag photos
    with #GOPDHunt2018 when you upload photos. Photos must be date-stamped
    as of July 28, 2018 and cannot be earlier or later. (If you wish to also have your photo qualify for the big grand prize “Night on the Town” drawing, also tag it with #GOPD2018.)
  4. Once you have finished visiting all locations and completed all tasks, upload your answers to that same social media site and also tag it with #GOPDHunt2018.
  5. Fill out your contact information below and turn in your completed booklet to Clarke Plaza, between 12-4pm, Adorni Center from 12-5pm, and Sequoia Park from 12-8pm on July 28, 2018 only.
  6. Winners will be chosen by raffle. Only one entry per person. Winner will be contacted via the social media they used by August 15. Judges’ decision is final.
