Annual event returns for another year of fun.
Woodstock residents and visitors will have the opportunity to learn about and explore Woodstock during the sixth annual Discover Woodstock Scavenger Hunt. The hunt begins Aug. 30 and runs through Sept. 15. The event provides a unique experience, as participants team up to gather photographic evidence of their journey through 100 different sites around Woodstock.
Whether you live or work in Woodstock, or are visiting, you are welcome to take part in this fun community activity. It will help you get to know the Woodstock area better. Participation in the event is free, and no advance registration is required.
The Discover Woodstock Scavenger Hunt offers a great chance to explore parks, historic sites, stores and restaurants in and around Woodstock. Many locations are hidden gems that even locals might not know exist. This is a perfect event for friends, families and coworkers.
Participants will have two weeks to complete as many of the 100 tasks, or challenges, as they can. Teams will compete for a $100 Downtown Dollars gift certificate and other prizes. All teams that complete a minimum number of challenges will be entered into a drawing to win prizes. Everyone has a chance to be a winner in the Discover Woodstock Scavenger Hunt.
Clues for starting the scavenger hunt will be released to teams on Aug. 30, at 10 a.m. on VisitWoodstockGA.com, the Downtown Woodstock facebook page, and hard copies will be available at the Woodstock Visitors Center.
