Join the May 20 Solvang “Third Wednesday” Scavenger Hunt,
a Town-Wide Touring and Team-Building Activity!
Solvang’s next monthly “Third Wednesday”, to be held Wednesday, May 20, 2015, will provide both Central Coast visitors and locals alike an ideal outlet for exploring Solvang’s hidden sides, and an opportunity to engage with Solvang’s varied merchants, through a special Solvang-wide Scavenger Hunt presented in coordination with the City of Solvang Parks and Recreation department.
May’s Solvang Third Wednesday Scavenger Hunt calls for self-formed teams of participants racing against each other, to uncover clues and rewards spread throughout the Santa Ynez Valley town, with entertaining, interactive activities en route. Team costumes are encouraged and prizes in multiple categories will be awarded at a post-Hunt pizza party, at Solvang’s Tower Pizza.
“The Solvang Third Wednesday Scavenger Hunt is a dynamic way to explore Solvang, and to create a great sense of community – within families, coworkers, or groups of friends. The Hunt is open to all ages, both businesses and private parties, and is perfect for discovering what you used to love about Solvang, and what you’ve yet to discover.”
~ Lisa Mesa, Owner of The Good Life, Craft Beer & Wine Cellar, and head of the Solvang Third Wednesday efforts
