ELF SCAVENGER HUNT
As a part of the Bladen County Christmas, the Elizabethtown – White Lake Chamber of Commerce is hosting an Elf Scavenger Hunt involving local merchants. Those who participate will visit local merchants to locate the E-WL Elf and get their card punched by employees. This scavenger hunt will be a 3 week event, lasting from November 26th until December 18th.
Starting November 26, visitors can download and print or pick up the Elf Scavenger Hunt Card at area merchants, the Chamber Office or during the Saturday events of Christmas at the Farmers Market.
-Chamber Office Address: 207 E Broad Street Elizabethtown, NC 28337
Once a card has been punched at least 10 times, it should be either turned into the last merchant or returned to the Chamber Office to be entered into a raffle contest. All cards that participants wish to be entered into the contest must be returned to the Chamber by December 20th. The lucky winner will receive a giant stocking filled with items donated by local merchants.
