SCAVENGER HUNT…for civil liberties.  In celebration of Constitution Day 2017.

Uh oh.  Where have our rights gone? Help us find them – or at least have fun trying - on this scavenger hunt through downtown Providence in celebration of Constitution Day 2017. First person/team to decipher all the clues wins a prize. This event is free and open to all and will be held rain or shine.  Come alone, or as a team!  Clues will be distributed to all participants at 11am at the meeting point (Smith Street Side of the RI State House).  Complete all the clues (with photos to prove it) by 1pm to claim your souvenir!

Rules...Here's what you need to know:

1) When you get to a landmark, take a photo (selfies welcome!) and share it on your Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #ConstitutionHunt.

2) You are welcome to follow the scavenger hunt by walking, driving, biking or running!

3) The first, second and third participants or teams to get to the end location before 1PM with photo proof of each landmark found will win prizes -- others will not leave empty handed!
