The Queen City is getting in the festive spirit this season with the inaugural FOUND holiday celebration.
The month-long event (from Nov. 30 through Dec. 24) will span from The Banks all the way to Findlay Market, transforming the city with ArtWorks-decorated store windows, dazzling Christmas trees to represent each Cincy neighborhood and weekly scavenger hunts.
FOUND'S city-wide scavenger hunt, "Finding Losantiville," kicked off Nov. 30 and invites participants to discover the city while they solve clues to uncover the "key to Losantiville." A grand prize and weekly prizes will be awarded.
"Designed by an expert team of game creators, the four-week-long city-wide scavenger hunt takes contestants on a journey to find the key to Losantiville," says event producer AGAR. "Each week a new clue is released with physical challenges throughout the city."
Check point clues are released every Monday, from Nov. 30 to Dec. 24. (CityBeat is a media partner and will be releasing clues weekly.)
Here's the first of four clues:
A monument to freedom situated on the north bank of the Ohio River.
"If you know where this clue is referencing, head there now to locate the Check Point to start your hunt," a message from the organizers reads.
You can join the hunt by messaging FOUND, where they explain how the scavenger hunt works and offer a link to sign up.
Weekly winners can take home $250 and a grand prize winner will receive $4,000 — $2,000 for you, and $2,000 for a charity of your choosing.
The FOUND website also offers an online destination to find holiday-related events happening across the city, like trivia, art shows, restaurant specials, holiday markets, activities and more.
