Hollywood Scavenger Hunt is set for Sept. 16-25; kick-off Sept. 14

Looking for something fun, free and adventurous to do with the family this fall? Consider participating in Hollywood’s second annual city-wide scavenger hunt.

Organized by Hollywood Gazette, this tried-and-true activity works with smart phone technology to track missions you complete for points and prizes.

Hundreds of missions will lead participants to discover a diverse sampling of all Hollywood has to offer. Participants can expect to learn about the history of Hollywood and will discover art, culture and natural beauty throughout the city.

My family and I have so enjoyed participating in the hunt,” said Megan McKeon about last year’s scavenger hunt. “This is our first year participating and it’s been a lot of fun! Thanks for providing such a great activity to our community! 

Participation is free and only a smart phone is needed to play. The majority of the missions require no cost or a nominal cost to complete.

“If a monetary consideration is involved in completing a mission, we work with the partnering organization to get the cost below $10,” said Tina Stiles, Associate Publisher of Hollywood Gazette. “For example, last year one of the missions required participants to board the Water Taxi; a coupon in Hollywood Gazette allowed scavenger hunt passengers on board for only $10.”

While most participants have said they are only playing for the fun of it, the top three teams will be awarded prize packages: $500 for the top team; $150 for second place and $75 for third plus a bundle of goodies from community partners.

This year’s hunt coordinator is Zoe Dekeles, a former hunt participant and fan. Dekeles has been hard at work creating new missions this year based on her personal experience with the hunt. The Dekeles family participated in the past two scavenger hunts and was a finalist each time.

A community kick-off party will be held at the Hollywood Jaycee Hall the week of the hunt where competitors can meet, mingle and strategize.
