Here's how it works: Sign in at the Village Green tent to receive your first clue.

Solve the riddles to find your next location; then perform the tasks to receive your next clue!

This is not a timed event. It should take about 1 - 1.25 hours to complete. Fun for all ages –

even for adults with no kids.
