2nd Annual Eggcellent Easter Scavenger Hunt

Auburn Parks and Recreation will host their second annual Eggcellent Easter Scavenger Hunt beginning Saturday, April 9 and ending Wednesday, April 13. The hunt will take place at one of our parks or facilities each day.

A clue will be posted on Facebook at 8:00 a.m. each morning of the scavenger hunt. The first clue will lead participants to one of the City’s parks or recreation facilities. Participants must use their phones to scan the QR code on the Easter egg to find the next clue. Once they have found all the clues within that location, they will be prompted to enter their name into the drawing for a prize. Only one entry per day is allowed for each participant. Each day you participate is a chance to earn another entry!

Five lucky participants will win a $25 gift card to a local business. Winners will be drawn at random on Thursday, April 14.

Be sure to follow the City of Auburn’s Facebook page prior to the scavenger hunt. This will ease navigation to the posted clue each morning.
