Giles County Scavenger Hunt Back for Second Year

Giles County Scavenger Hunt Back for Second Year

Giles County, VA- Chances are you’ve hiked and taken a picture at Cascade Falls in Pembroke, Virginia. Many of you have also enjoyed a meal at The Palisades Restaurant in the Village of Eggleston. The entire month of May you are encouraged to ‘Be a Tourist in Your Own Backyard’ and to participate in the Giles County-wide Scavenger Hunt that begins on May 1st and continues through Saturday, June 3. Right Turn, Clyde Brewing Company (RTC) in Narrows is sponsoring the Hunt and all proceeds will benefit the Giles County Access to Community College Education (A.C.C.E.) Fund.

 

To participate, after May 1st, you can either visit RTC during their evening business hours, get the hunt list, and pay the $2 registration or, Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm you can visit the Giles County Visitors Center, located with the Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Marketing Office at 203 N. Main St, Pearisburg. Upon registering each user will receive the hunt list that includes 51 different tasks to complete and their official entry wrist band. Each photo must have the wristband visible for it to count. There are three levels of tasks that make it easy for a youth or family adventure, or you can try to conquer them all!

 

Scavenging and finding the items may be hard enough for some, but to qualify participants may also need to take a picture at the location and share to social media. Follow along on the journey by watching #GilesHunt on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. All entries should be returned, including all items needed according to the list, to Right Turn, Clyde on Saturday, June 3. You are invited to attend their live music that evening. If participants are unable or finish early, their lists and items can be returned to the Giles County Visitor Center during the work week.

 

Prizes will be given and an overall winner will win the official, custom made Giles County Scavenger Hunt trophy that will stay on display at RTC, and the bragging rights. How well do you know Virginia’s Mountain Playground™? Are you up for the Hunt?
