Imagine playing Hide & Seek...but on the streets...with over 800 strangers... and there is no hiding....just seeking objects and events instead of people. Thats right, Toronto has once more announced its largest annual scavenger hunt yet hosted by Improve Toronto! On Saturday May 23, gather your 8 best buddies and head down to Nathan Phillips Square at 2pm. This event is free, fun, and a chance for you to step outside your comfort zone.
According to the recently published Facebook event, they ask you to come prepped with a camera (or anything to take digital pictures with) and $10 dollars cash for certain small tasks. I personally recommend you bring your TTC metro pass (just incase). Your team can have up to 8 members, but worry not if your group is small, you can be paired up at the rink before the hunt starts. Though they are not yet announced, there are some awesome prizes to be given out so stay tuned!
The event will basically start with a distributed list. It will contain tons of activities found throughout the downtown core. There will be challenges, obstacles, and puzzles to complete along with finding obscure items and taking pictures of stuff as evidence. To really test your Toronto know-how, the time limit will only give you two hours to hunt. All groups are to meet back at Nathan Phillips Square to tally up the scores.
If you are interested in volunteering, feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to hashtag #ITScavenger through out the hunt!
