Once the turkey is eaten and the parade is over, what can you do with the rest of your holiday weekend? How about a fun and challenging scavenger hunt that takes you exploring through four Northern Kentucky neighborhoods?
The Finders Keepers Thanksgiving Weekend Scavenger Hunt is perfect for a family, couple or group of friends. With your Code Kit, you’ll have everything you need for up to four players. You can do the hunt any time between Thanksgiving morning and the evening of Sunday November 27th.
What the Hunt Entails
Put on your spectacles and thinking caps because the puzzles require sharp eyes and a clever mind. There are four neighborhoods included in the hunt: downtown Covington, MainStrasse Village, historic downtown Newport and Bellevue’s Fairfield Avenue entertainment district. Each neighborhood has several puzzles to solve, mostly based on the public art and architecture you’ll encounter.
You’ll find clues, crack codes and test your brain as you solve the puzzles and do the photo challenges. Submit your answers when you’re done, and you could win art from local artists and prizes from NKY businesses.
The puzzles are intended for smarty pants adults and kids ages 12 and up. Younger kids can help spot the clues and play in the park and open spaces included on the hunt.
Registration for Finders Keepers closes on November 18, so don’t delay. Reserve your Code Kit here. Proceeds help support the arts in NKY.
If you are looking for a fun activity to do over the holiday weekend, how about a scavenger hunt? You’ll explore four Covington neighborhoods, finding clues, cracking codes and solving puzzles. You can even win prizes, like original art by local artists.
The hunt is not timed, so there is no added pressure. Players have from 8:00 am on Thanksgiving through 9:00 pm on Sunday November 28 to turn in their solutions.
The hunt is perfect for families, couples and groups of friends. The puzzles are designed for adults and older children, but young kids can help spot the clues and enjoy the parks and public spaces included in the hunt.
The puzzles range in difficulty from “easy peasy” to “puzzle master” and encourage players to discover the art, architecture and fun things to do in Covington. You can walk, bike or drive between clue locations, all of which can be accessed without going indoors.
Proceeds from Finders Keepers will support the Catalytic Fund’s public art initiatives, including NKY ArtQuest, a free calendar of arts-related events and NKY Art Tours, which are free, self-guided tours of public art in the river cities.
