On-course and block party scavenger hunt
We’ve hidden tokens throughout the course – these are either lettered or numbered and are painted bright orange. Return these to the prize tent at the block party for your treasure! The prize tent will open at 8pm. ONLY ONE token per person can be turned in. If you do find two – share it with a friend who wasn’t as lucky.
We have a total of 5 “golden tickets” available for our out of town guests. Four of these will be randomly selected from those that don’t live in Emporia. The fifth will be selected by Visit Emporia in conjunction with their Ride Spot Flint Hills Scavenger Hunt
