Downtown Alliance to hold scavenger hunt to lure shoppers

LOGAN – Logan’s Downtown Alliance has scheduled their first ever Logan Downtown Scavenger Hunt for the days leading up to Valentine’s Day, from February 8-13 in Downtown Logan.

Loan’s Downtown Alliance place to have a Scavenger Hunt to promote businesses leading up to Valentine’s Day.

Gary Saxton, the Alliance’s executive director, said they are trying to find ways to have a fun event without having a bunch of people in one place at one time.

People can be physically distanced, it spreads the activity out for days and participate at different times,” he said. “This way we can host an event and people come any time of the week and it is not a two-hour event that a lot of people attend.“

These scavenger hunts can be done in smaller groups.

“These scavenger hunts have been going on in other cities and some of them are date nights,” he said. “We modified it to get more people to participate.”

It is the same way kids do it but instead of gathering stuff up they will just take a photo of it.

“Participants go to a location and then you take a picture of (yourself) at the location,” he said. “We hope to continue the scavenger hunts for other occasions, like Saint Patrick’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day and so on.”

The Downtown Alliance will evaluate this one and see how it goes before they can get it ready for the next one.
