Three Ways to Win

1. Find Local

Complete the scavenger hunt! The scavenger hunt must be completed in order using the QR code scanner on a phone. The final scavenger hunt location will take you to a sign-up page where Kenmore Heritage Society will receive information stating you’ve completed the scavenger hunt.  The scavenger hunt is worth one entry.

2. Share Local

Take a selfie at a hunt location! Tag BOTH the Kenmore Heritage Society and the local business where you are led by the clue. Privacy setting must allow Kenmore Heritage Society to view your post. Each selfie is equal to one entry!

3. Shop Local

Support small business by shopping local, eating local, or playing local. For every $5 spent, you will receive two entries to win a prize. Be sure to upload a photo of your receipt at the end of the hunt.

The results are in! This year we had awesome participation in the HUNT! There were three clear winners who collected most of their points by posting selfies and making purchases from participating businesses.


We created the hunt during covid to 1) support local businesses and 2) create a fun activity to do outdoors while learning about Kenmore. Each year we gain scavenger hunters, and local businesses look forward to participating.  To show our appreciation, we will also send gift cards to folks who participated but didn’t make it to the winners circle this year.

Thanks to all – we look forward to seeing you next year!

What is a QR Code?

How do I use it? 

A QR Code is a two-dimensional barcode that can be read by smartphones. The barcode will take you to a webpage that will display your next clue for the Pot O’Gold Scavenger Hunt. Most smartphones come equipped with the ability to read QR codes, or free apps can be downloaded from your cell phone provider’s App Store.

QR Codes for IOS/Apple Devices:

Quickly add a QR Code reader shortcut to your phone’s control center (the menu that appears when you ‘swipe up’) by visiting Settings → Control Center → Customize Controls →Add QR Code Reader.
