Families are encouraged to participate in the Pumpkin Scavenger Hunt for a chance to win Halloween prizes.
From Oct. 12 until Oct. 30, families can use the Pumpkin Scavenger Hunt hints or map, to find pumpkin displayed at businesses throughout the community.
“When families find a pumpkin, they will take a photo of the pumpkin, selfies in costume are highly recommended, and email the photos to me,” said Pumpkin Scavenger Hunt Organizer, Kim Soderberg McRae.
“Businesses are really excited to participate. It’s a great way for them to market themselves in a very low-cost way and hopefully find some new customers and clients,” she said.
Every photo taken and emailed to Soderberg McRae will equal one entry into a draw for boxes of Halloween candy.
Due to COVID-19, the annual Macaroni Kid Trunk or Treat had to be cancelled. However, Soderberg McRae still wanted to have a Halloween event where families could dress up and spend time together while following COVID-19 guidelines.
“The Pumpkin Scavenger Hunt was a way to still have a family Halloween event, but one that families can do on their own time over the course of a couple of days or weeks and easily respect social distancing,” Soderberg McRae said.
“I hope that families find this a fun and unique way to spend some family time together while exploring our amazing community and discovering local businesses,” she added. “Macaroni Kid is all about helping families find their family fun.”
