PVDFEST SCAVENGER HUNT
Need some fresh air? Want to win cool prizes? In celebration of PVDFest season, the PVDFest team invites you to participate in a virtual scavenger hunt. While we couldn’t safely parade down Washington street with our closest friends this year, we can still soak up public art, enjoy Providence’s world-class culinary scene, and support local businesses in the spirit of PVDFest—Providence’s signature summer arts festival.
As part of the hunt, participants will visit locations on the PVDFest footprint, snap an image or video that clearly shows them at the location and share it on social media using hashtag #PVDFestHunt and tagging @pvdfest.
Grab your selfie stick, fliest festival wear (and comfiest shoes) and experience all things PVDFest!
