A Scavenger Hunt in Hollister

The Hollister Downtown Association (HDA) is hosting a scavenger hunt during the first seven days of July.  

Yippeee! I love a scavenger hunt, don't you?

July 1 through July 7 is National Independents Week, which is sponsored by the American Independent Business Alliance.  It is an annual event to honor and promote local independent businesses nationwide. This year, the HDA is participating and, as part of its celebration of Hollister's own small businesses, it is holding a scavenger hunt.  Whoo-hoo!

Grand prize is $200!   Hot dog!

How does the scavenger hunt work?
  1. You must be at 18 years or older to play the game.
  2. Get your game card. You can download it  here from the HDA Web site.
  3. During July 1 through 7, find 20 diverse items, such as angel pins, lemon cake, solar panels, WD-40, and organic chicken, at the participating businesses. You don't have to buy anything (if you can resist), but you do need to have someone at a business's register to endorse your game card.
  4. When you've found all items, submit it to the HDA off by 5 p.m. on July 9th. You'll find the address details on your game card.
Not interested in playing? Okay, more chances for me of winning the grand prize, thank you very much.  But, I hope you do go out and support our local businesses, particularly during National Independents Week. Check out this HDA web page for tips about shopping locally.

FYI: These are the participating businesses in the Scavenger Hunt.
