Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger Hunt

October 20, 2015 | By

We will be having a scavenger hunt at the Fair! Kids and adults alike are encouraged to take a short break from the rides and explore the many things that there are to do and see at the Fair! You never know, you may find something that you never even knew was there!

Scavenger Hunt Rules

Find 20 of the 35 items listed. Take a selfie to prove it. When you have completed your 20 selfies, go to the information booth located in the center of the Fair (near the carousel) and show your selfies to Melissa to receive your prizes.

What’s in it for me?

If you complete this hunt, you will receive a coupon to use on the fairgrounds for a 2 for 1 Pronto Pup discount coupon and a free drip coffee at Drowsy Poet as well as a ribbon for completing the Fair Scavenger Hunt.
