Solvang’s next monthly “Third Wednesday”, to be held Wednesday, May 18, 2016, will provide both Central Coast visitors and locals an interactive means of exploring Solvang, and a dynamic opportunity to engage with local merchants and businesses, through a special Solvang-wide Scavenger Hunt presented in coordination with the City of Solvang Parks and Recreation department.

May’s Solvang Third Wednesday Scavenger Hunt calls for self-formed teams of participants racing against each other, to uncover clues and rewards spread throughout the Santa Ynez Valley town, with entertaining activities en route. Team costumes are encouraged and prizes in multiple categories will be awarded at a post-Hunt pizza party, at Solvang’s Tower Pizza. Prizes and prize categories will be announced prior to the Scavenger Hunt, and will be posted on the Solvang Third Wednesday web site: www.solvangthirdwednesday.com.

The Solvang Third Wednesday Scavenger Hunt will kick off at 5:45 PM on Wednesday, May 18. Registered teams are called to meet at Solvang Park (Mission Drive and First Street) at 5:30 PM.
