The Halloween Techno Zombie Geo Cache Hunt! is an all ages community scavenger hunt utilizing digital and traditional technology to send players (fresh humans) into local businesses for an interactive fun activity, and to do light community service work en route.
The event culminates with an awards celebration in the evening with prizes, refreshments and live music.
Prizes are awarded to players, best business activity, best advertising sponsor ad, zombie with the most coins, best slowdown activity, best nonprofit organization's activity.
To have fun! The businesses won't sell you anything, nor entice you to sign up and register to get you to come back and we won't give you a brochure or coupon to get you to come back when you walk in. We just wanna play!
Humans with smart-phones, brains and automobiles. Shoppers, tourists, and any other unsuspecting humans we can catch!
