If you're looking for a fun, safe event on Halloween where you can even win cash, look no further than the Northern Expressions Arts Collective's "A Socially Distant Scavenger Hunt".

NEAC is presenting "A Socially Distant Scavenger Hunt" on October 31, beginning at 1:00 p.m.  The scavenger hunt will take place at landmarks located within a six mile radius of the Lincoln Park Craft District.

Participants can compete as a household for one of three family prize packages or as a team of up to four friends for a $250 cash prize. All clues will be texted to the teams, who will then text back pictures of their team solving each clue. A $10 fee per team will be charged to help cover the cost of the prize packages.

Those interested in participating in the event must register and pay the entry fee by midnight on Friday, October 30, 2020. You can click here to access the official registration page.

While 2020 would've marked the 8th year of the Northern Expressions Arts Collective's annual Haunted Happenings trick or treating stop in Lincoln Park, the COVID-19 pandemic forced organizers to plan an alternate event. "A Socially Distant Scavenger Hunt" will still provide a good time, while keeping the community safe.
