•Scavenger Hunt 12:00pm-6:00pm
Participants will begin their hunt with a map that can be picked up at the Welcome Center. Each participating merchant will be listed on the map and will have a small pumpkin in their store with a letter on the bottom of the pumpkin. They have to go in your shop, search for pumpkin, write down the letter that they find on their map and you will sign off on their sheet. When their sheet is complete and all has signed off on their map, they will turn it into the chamber for their name to go into a drawing. One chosen individual will win $100 chamber bucks. The drawing will be at the Welcome Center at 6:30pm. You do not have to be present to win.
