Huntsville’s Holiday Hunt is sure to put you in the mood for the holidays!
With more than 20 riddles to solve, participants will be sure to get in the festive spirit as they search for treasures hidden around Huntsville’s downtown core and surrounding area. The social distanced scavenger hunt will take place the weekend of December 16 and is completed between Friday at 12pm and Saturday at 9pm. “We wanted to create a fun family event that could be carried out social distancing and at the same time showcase our amazing community” said Dione Schumacher, Rotarian and event Chair.
The funds raised support Rotary People of Action Huntsville’s service projects performed in and around the community. “The funds raised help us with projects we perform in the community. Whether it be purchasing paint or renting a wood chipper at cost, we try to partner with other organizations to keep costs down but in the end if we need to purchase something to get the job done, we have the funds to do so,” said Kelly Hammond, Rotarian and committee member.
On Friday, December 16th, participants are sent 20+ riddles which they have to solve. The riddles will take them to different locations in and around the Huntsville core. Each team has to find treasures that have been strategically placed. Once they find the treasure, they take a selfie as proof they found their destinations. In addition to a random prize, prizes will also be awarded for most creative selfie and the team who answers the most riddles.
Tickets for the event can be purchased through the club’s event page on Facebook or through their website www.peopleofactionhuntsville.com
