NKY Finders Keepers Scavenger Hunt

The free scavenger hunt was created by Jill Morenz from the Catalytic Fund. She describes it as “a fun, no-cost way for people to explore the art, architecture and businesses on Monmouth Street, while finding clues and solving puzzles.”

The hunt can be played any time between 5:00 pm on Friday April 23 and 6:00 pm on Sunday April 25. Prizes include merchandise and gift cards from Newport businesses.

The clue locations in the Spring Fling hunt will be found in the public art, architecture and window displays on Monmouth Street, starting from the “Tribute to Newport mural” and ending at the World Peace Bell Center. The entire hunt can be done with just a smart phone, but players might find it helpful to bring along a piece of paper and a pen. While supplies last, there will be pencils and Code Keys available by the Finder Keepers easel sign at the Tribute to Newport mural.
