If you’re in the mood to have a great, spring-style time, test your mind and your curiosity AND at the same time benefit the local business community, we have JUST the thing for you! The Fairmount CDC invites the community to participate in the Fairmount Scavenger Hunt from Sunday, April 25 at 10am through Saturday, May 1 at 3pm.
Participants are encouraged to solve clues at a variety of businesses and landmarks along Fairmount Avenue and beyond for a chance to win one of three top prizes. The donation-based, family friendly event will provide vital funds for the Fairmount Civic Association, Fairmount CDC and the COVID-19 Business Relief Fund.
In exchange for a donation, participants will receive an emailed packet with a list of clues, a link to submit answers online, a helpful neighborhood map, and a participant badge. The badge should be kept handy on a phone or printed out, as badges must be shown for entry into one or two of the locations.
Each participant will earn points for every correct answer submitted. Prizes will be awarded with a variety of neighborhood goodies to the top three individuals/groups who score the most points at the close of the contest on May 1st. (To be eligible to win a prize, no purchase is required at any of the participating businesses.)
Participants may enter the scavenger hunt as an individual, couple, or a group such as a family or group of friends. Additionally, children under the age of 13 are asked to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Participation for individuals, couples, and groups is limited to one clue card per entry and multiple clue cards submitted for each participant are discouraged.
