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.
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 40 destinations participating in the hunt.
“Here we go again, “says Norwalk Now Director Linda Kavanagh, excited for another entertaining afternoon of crazy antics and camaraderie, “The hunt challenges participants on all levels, from how well you know the city of Norwalk, to solving mind-bending clues and completing unusual tasks, most of which result in hilarious pandemonium.”
Destinations are comprised of Norwalk Now businesses, supporters, and public domains. The final destination is found by solving a series of clues along the journey. Upon completion of the hunt, the after party begins, where the winners will be announced. The team completing the most challenges in the shortest amount of time is the winner. Prizes include a $500 Norwalk Now gift card package and Free Parking gift bundles for the runners up.
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
