Once found, a picture of the mural must be taken with the participant in the photo - selfies welcomed and encouraged.  Each mural will have a specific point value. The goal is to collect as many points as possible throughout the weekend. You can do this solo or make it a team effort, just keep in mind everyone must register!  Prizes will be given following the event, as tiered point levels are reached. So get your smartphone or camera ready, because the hunt is on! 

There have been 16 murals selected for you to find throughout various neighborhoods around town, including Downtown, Jackson Ward, the Fan, Broad Street and Oregon Hill.  Each of the murals have been assigned a point value depending on the difficulty of the clue.  Along with the points associated with the clue, there is the opportunity for Bonus Points by visiting participating restaurants. Take your bib to the following restaurants and they will place a stamp or sticker on it. You will receive two bonus points per restaurant visited along with some special prizes restaurants will be handing out. Hurry though, some restaurants will only give additional prizes to the first 10 participants! Take a picture of your bib at the end of the weekend and send it along with your mural photos to get credit for your bonus points.
