Christmas Scavenger Hunt Anyone?

New to the Old Town Christmas Festival this year is the Old Town Christmas Scavenger Hunt! This free event does not require registration.

Is your family up for the challenge? Test your family’s teamwork and competitive spirit.  Join us at 12:45 on Dec. 7th to participate in this fun photo hunt.  Families will be given photo activities to participate in throughout the festival grounds.  All you need to participate is a digital camera/phone and a smile!

The first family to capture all of the photo opportunities will win a gift basket, but the best prize of all is spending time with your family in Old Town Leander.
