Historic Scavenger Hunt

The Halifax Area 225th Anniversary Celebration
The Halifax Area Historical Scavenger Hunt: A Photographic Exploration

Time travel to the past…by going on an exploration through decades of Halifax Area history.
We will provide a list of clues related to the sites in and around Halifax for you to put your knowledge to the test as you search for the answers.
Participation will include a mixture of walking and driving in order to cover the Halifax Area.

You will not have to enter any of the locations.
Participants may work individually or with a partner.
There are no age restrictions for the contest.

Get at least eight of the locations photographed and send them to halifaxarea225@gmail.com in order to be entered into a drawing for a prize. The entry period for the photographic scavenger hunt contest will close on August 16th, 2019.

Winners will be randomly selected from all received entries. A $25 prize will be awarded to one solo competitor and $50 will go to one team. The Scavenger Hunt Committee will announce the winners on August 17th at the Fireworks Carnival. The winners will also receive a phone call notification. Additionally, the winner and other selected entries will have their photographs published on the events website and Facebook page, with full credit being given to the entrant.
We do ask that all participants be respectful of the historic sites and locations; as well as be mindful of private property.
