Beaufort, NC – Cape Lookout National Seashore welcomes anyone looking to escape the crowded stores on ‘Black Friday’ to participate in a park scavenger hunt as an opt-outside alternative.
The scavenger hunt will be an on-going event beginning at 9 A.M. – 2 P.M. on Friday, November 25, 2016, and takes place at the Cape Lookout National Seashore Beaufort Visitor Information Center (Beaufort Town Hall at 701 Front Street, Beaufort, NC).
Interested participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the park while completing their scavenger hunt sheets, which will lead them both inside and outside the Beaufort Town Hall building in a race for perfection in the fastest time.
Winners will be determined at the Beaufort Visitor Information Center by no later than 2 P.M., and prizes will be claimed at that time. The top three contestants will be based on the fastest and most correctly completed scavenger hunt entries.
