    Spring into Summer: Great Bellevue Scavenger Hunt Returns!

    Date and Time:

    Bellevue, WA


    Back by popular demand! Join your friends, family, and neighbors in fun challenges from Memorial Day weekend until the first official day of summer in another Great Bellevue Scavenger Hunt, running May 28 through June 20, 2021.

    The scavenger hunt is a virtual game played on a mobile device using the free Goose Chase app. The game gives families and friends a safe and fun way to explore in and around your home, your neighborhood and the City of Bellevue! Participants will also get a chance to win prizes.

    Participants can download the free app and register for the game now. You’ll receive a notification when the game officially begins with the first challenge on May 28 at 8 a.m.  The game runs through June 20 at 10 p.m., and players can join the game any time during the game period.

    Teams earn points by answering trivia or taking pictures or videos doing the missions at home or throughout the City. Missions will vary but may include exploring local parks, getting saavy with spring cleaning, showing off your neighborhood, saving the planet with eco challenges, sharing old memories of Bellevue, or even activities with your pets!
