Come enjoy an OZ adventure! The 6th Annual Downtown Glen Ellyn
Scavenger Hunt begins July 1, 2013
May 30, 2013—Follow the yellow brick road to The Glen Ellyn Public Library where you can begin the best summer adventure ever! For the 6th year in a row, the Alliance of Downtown Glen Ellyn is excited to offer this FREE event for everyone to enjoy! Over 1000 participate each year and their discoveries go far beyond the Wizard of Oz-related items. Those who participate and complete the adventure are entered to win prizes, including a $100 shopping spree and more!
The scavenger hunt is free of charge and participants begin at The Glen Ellyn Public Library any date after July 1 (but make sure to leave enough time to finish your quest before July 31)! This year, we offer you two options: Pick up your guidebook at The Glen Ellyn Public Library or download our new smart phone app and go to the Scavenger Hunt category for the guidebook and head out on the adventure! Both the scavenger hunt and the app are free of charge.
Once you complete the mission of finding different Oz items in the businesses, head to The Bookstore to turn in your completed sheet, which will qualify you for prize drawings consisting of many awesome items donated by Glen Ellyn businesses! All completed adventures will receive a free cupcake at 2Toots Train Whistle Grill.
Also, save the date and reserve your space for the Bookstore’s Grand Finale party on Thursday, August 1st from 2-3pm. Treats will be served and prizes winners will be chosen. You don’t have to be there to win, but it sure was fun last year!
