Curious about Downtown Tacoma? Want to get outside and celebrate summer? Then DOTG has the event for you! Starting out virtually on August 5, the free challenge will send you on a journey through downtown to decode clues, do activities, and visit locations on foot, on bike or skateboard, or by bus and Link.
The event, sponsored by Pierce Transit, Commencement Bank and the Downtown Tacoma Partnership will be held over the week of August 5 – 12, with an in-person event on August 12. Participants should register online by Monday, August 2, and will receive details and clue sheets via email at noon on Thursday, August 5. On the hunt, participants complete as many activities and questions as possible. Results are due by noon on Thursday, August 12 at an in-person prize event, with music, activities and opportunities to meet with DOTG staff and sponsors. There will also be an opportunity to submit answers via email.
Build a team of colleagues from work, grab a pal or two, work individually, or bring the family to learn more about active transportation, explore great Tacoma locations, and get out into the community. All ages are welcome. Scavenger hunters can work individually or create a team up to five members. Prizes will be awarded to teams and individuals who achieve certain point levels based on responses and activities. Engage with Downtown On the Go social media during the hunt by using unique hashtags, sharing photos and checking in at specific locations. Don’t forget to bring your smartphone!
The Walk Tacoma series, sponsored by MultiCare and Greentrike, is a five-event walking series. The fun, themed walks, now in their twelfth year, encourage people to enjoy downtown on foot by introducing new walking routes and sharing information about the community and its history through the guided tours. We’re happy to be back in-person with everyone, and all the 2020 and 2021 walks are still available virtually and can be accessed on the walk page at www.downtownonthego.com.
