Discover the hidden gems of York at a city-wide scavenger hunt
Think you're an expert on all things York City?
Test your knowledge at York Young Professionals Foot Rally Presented by York College of Pennsylvania Saturday, Aug. 29.
Teams of four or five will navigate the city, solve clues and complete tasks in a city-wide scavenger hunt to discover the hidden gems of York.
The idea is to highlight some of the businesses and opportunities downtown that some people might not know about, YYP Vice President Karin Swartz said.
"It (gives) us a way to get people walking around and getting people to see something they wouldn't see from their car," she said.
Last year's foot rally included stops at the York County Heritage Trust's Agricultural and Industrial Museum, the Royal Square neighborhood, CoWork155 and Santander Stadium.
"Every person (who participated in the foot rally) saw something they've never been to before," Swartz said.
This year's 90-minute tour steps off from CoWork155. At 1 p.m., teams will receive their first clue, which will then send them to five destinations throughout downtown York.
"It's designed to test their knowledge of York, and when they get to the location, they'll complete a task to receive their next clue," Swartz said.
These tasks range from trivia to Pictionary, she said.
Teams can also solve additional clues and take photos of specified locations to reduce time from their score.
Winning teams will receive gift cards to downtown businesses and restaurants.
After the foot rally, participants are invited to an after-party with free appetizers and a cash bar at 3 p.m. at White Rose Bar and Grill, 48 N. Beaver St., York.
Tickets are free for YYP members, $10 for non-members and include a t-shirt and a chance to win prizes.
But, you have to act fast. Spots are filling up quickly, Swartz said, and only 10 teams are permitted in the rally. Click here to register as a team or as an individual.
