In the lead-up to Halloween, some colourful critters have been popping up in shops around the Lithgow region. They are part of a scavenger hunt that will run throughout October, aiming to get people out and about in local businesses.
The hunt, organised by Lithgow City Council, challenges people to find 13 characters hidden and go in the draw for prizes. You can pick up forms from businesses, the Visitor Information Centre, or download from www.halloween.lithgow.com.
Participants need to correctly answer the location and character for a minimum of eight clues. If all thirteen characters are found, participants are immediately entered into the draw three times.
Entries close Monday, October 23. Completed forms can be sent to Lithgow Halloween Scavenger Hunt, PO Box 19, Lithgow NSW 2790, or scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
