Not-So-Spooky Family Fun
City Of Boo-Bank Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt
October 31st 9am-12pm
Join the fun on Halloween for a mysterious scavenger hunt in search of 13 scarecrows in Burbank! These scarecrows are taking up residence in various parks around town and you might even find one at a mystery location. Can you track them all down? Using photo clues, your job will be to discover each scarecrow’s destination. Once you find a scarecrow, you’ll also need to search for the scarecrow’s name and jot it down on the Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt Game Card. Solve the mystery and you’ll be rewarded at your final destination!
Game cards will be available beginning October 26th, 2020. Note: Scarecrows will not appear until the day of the event.
All ages welcome to participate. Only the youngest scarecrow seekers (under 18) will receive a reward at the final destination. Open to Burbank residents only. Only one entry per Burbank address is allowed for prize drawing. Please remember to practice social distancing while participating in this activity.
