“Step On It!” Sidewalk Scavenger Hunt a success!

On a Nov. 3rd, sightseers, residents, friends, and families ventured out and braved the forecast of rain and wind to gather at Old City Hall and participate in WalkBoston’s scavenger hunt.  Teams and individuals alike grabbed their clues and eagerly set off within the Downtown Boston area to search the sidewalks and uncover embedded images/phrases.  Fun wrapped up with a bit of history sums it up as participants hunted for over a dozen items: the lyrics to the “Tea Tax,” a plaque commemorating the building of the first subway in America, and many more.  The two-hour hunt ended with a celebration of food, drinks and announcement of four winning teams: Ali’s Alley Explorers, Lovely Ladies, Spark, and The Sidewalk Raptors.

The winners: Ali’s Alley Explorers!

Thanks to our staff, board members, and volunteers who put this event together and our co-sponsors MP Boston and the Downtown Boston Business Improvement District, who generously invested their resources promoting our event.
