If you see groups of adults snapping pictures of local landmarks on Saturday, don’t be surprised. They are no doubt participants in the Forest Park Public Library’s “Forest Park Scavenger Hunt” challenge. The hunt is a combination photography contest, puzzle-based game and race all rolled into one.

Beginning at noon on Saturday, Oct. 20, teams of up to four adults will be given a list of clues in riddle form describing Forest Park locations – historic and modern-day. By bike, car or on foot, participants will travel to the site and take a photo.

The team with the most correct photos by 3 p.m. wins the challenge.

“The riddles are very clever and local,” said program coordinator Sarah Beth Warshauer. “It’s a really interesting way to learn about Forest Park and it helps with our push for local programming,” she said.

“It’s a great way to find out what people do here and the history of this town.”

Warshauer said there is still time to sign up on the library website at www.fppl.org.
