Norwalk City Hunt through Wall Street and SoNo Neighborhoods of Norwalk
April 27 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm
Norwalk Now presents Norwalk City Hunt, an interactive “Amazing Race” throughout the Wall Street and SoNo neighborhoods of Norwalk, CT. This high-spirited afternoon of clues and challenges takes place Saturday, April 27 with a meet-up time of 10:30 AM at O’Neill’s Irish Pub.
Meet-up: 10:30 AM
Hunt: 11 AM-1:30 PM
After Party: 1:30-3 PM
After Party: You’ve got to solve the clues to get there!
Participants (21 and older) compete in teams of 4 and are guided through the hunt on the City Hunt phone app. From there, a series of location clues, questions, and challenges are tackled with the successful completion of these activities being answered, recorded, or photographed on the team leader’s phone and submitted. Participants will be walking, running, or catching a Norwalk Now Circulator Van or Wheels2U bus, which will shuffle them between neighborhoods to the over 30 destinations participating in the hunt.
Norwalk Now Director Linda Kavanagh, a huge fan of City Hunts throughout the country, views Norwalk as an ideal location for such an adventure. “I have participated in these crazy mad dashes across cities such as New York, Boston, and Charleston. You really get to know a city and find yourself doing things that only social media should be allowed to capture!”
Destinations are comprised of Norwalk Now businesses, supporters, and public domains. The final destination is found by solving the clue. Upon completion of the Hunt, winners will be announced and the after party begins! Prizes include a $500 Norwalk Now gift card package and Free Parking gift bundles. Norwalk Now Circulator Van will continue service throughout the night and discount parking for the day will be offered. Go to the Norwalk Now Facebook to obtain the code.
Tickets are $40 per person ($140 for a team of 4) and include the City Hunt challenge and phone app, NCH swag, and the after party. Sign-up solo and form your team at the meet-up or sign-up your foursome at www.norwalknow.org
