Online Staff Report
In an effort to engage residents in learning about the variety of businesses on Rockford’s “Miracle Mile,” the group is hosting its first “Shop the Mile Scavenger Hunt.” The public will be given a scavenger pass, have to solve the riddles on the pass to find the right business, and get their pass stamped at each participating business. Completed passes will be entered into a drawing for a set of four tires for a passenger vehicle including tax and labor, valued at $500.
Following are the details:
• Kick-off and pass pick-up: 5:30-6:30 p.m., June 24 — Don Carter Lanes, 4007 E. State St., will host the kick-off on its lower-level outdoor patio. Light snacks will be provided. Interested participants should attend the kick off to pick up their scavenger pass.
• Hunt!: June 25-28 — Participants have these three-and-a-half days to figure out the riddles and get their pass stamped at all participating businesses.
• Prize Giveaway!: 1-2 p.m., June 28 — Don Carter Lanes will host the prize giveaway on its lower-level outdoor patio. Light snacks will be provided. Participants who have completed their pass must have their pass turned in to Don Carter Lanes by 1:30 p.m., June 28. The drawing for the tires will be at 1:30 p.m. A second prize will also be available — a bowling and pizza party for four people valued at $90.
