Front Porch readers are invited to explore Stapleton’s most notable landmarks in a scavenger hunt, either by bike or on foot.
Participants who complete the Scavenger Hunt will be entered to win various prizes, including gift cards to Stapleton businesses and two grand prizes: a Family Four-Pack to Frozen on Ice and a new Cruiser Bike.
The event will start at Fred Thomas Park, where entertainment (including a DJ and musicians from Neighborhood Music), snacks and refreshments will be offered throughout the morning.
Participants are encouraged to register online before the event, but they can also register from 9 – 10am. Pre-registered participants will pick up their clues during the registration time. Teams can have up to six members.
Registered participants will be given a list of 10 clues and can choose from walking, biking and driving routes to complete the game. There will be a total of five routes, with one in north Stapleton. (For those who don’t know Stapleton well, information will be provided that will enable all participants to find the locations in their clue list.)
Participants with smart phones or cameras can take a picture at each of the 10 locations. Those without cameras will pick up a token to show they followed all the clues. Participants who return to Fred Thomas Park by 12pm and show proof of finding the 10 locations (with their photos or tokens) will be entered into a drawing. Prize winners will be announced at 12:30pm.
Every registered participant will get a free hat with a Green Book logo. Free valet bike parking and bike rental will be available.
This event, sponsored by the Stapleton Foundation, is to celebrate the 20th anniversary of “The Green Book,” the document that envisioned what should happen to the seven square miles of the former Stapleton Airport.
Fred Thomas Park is located at 2400 N. Quebec St. Registration will be near the pavilion, which is in the center of the park. For more information and to register for the scavenger hunt visit www.stapleton denver.com/scavenger-hunt.
