Civic Area SMiLE Scavenger Hunt (Boulder)
June 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
TYPE: Walk & Talk | PACE: Gentle/Child-Friendly | TERRAIN: Sidewalks, some dirt paths | DISTANCE: Approx. 1/2 mile
Walk Description: Bring your children, grandchildren and young-at-heart friends to downtown Boulder for a fun, family-friendly SMiLE scavenger hunt! We’ll meet at the playground outside of the Main Boulder Public Library, then walk through the Civic Area, keeping our eyes peeled for up to 10 artworks by Boulder’s favorite street artist, SMiLE. Participants will receive a “bingo card” of all of the SMiLE works on our route with clues written in verse – spot them all and win a prize! We’ll have snacks and stickers for all of the young explorers who come along. Optional lunch at the Farmer’s Market afterward for all who would like to participate.
On this family walking adventure, we’ll also share and look over the new Growing Up Boulder Child-Friendly City Map (the FIRST of its kind in the country!). Learn more here.
