Union Square Presents 3rd Annual Keg Hunt
On May 5, 2018 from 2pm to 5pm Union Square, Ellsworth’s young professionals arm of the Ellsworth Area Chamber of Commerce, will be hosting their third annual Great Golden Keg Hunt, presented by Atlantic Brewing Company.
The Great Golden Keg Hunt is a team-based scavenger hunt through downtown Ellsworth where teams of up to four people complete puzzles and challenges in order to find clues that lead to (empty) golden kegs hidden throughout the city. Team costumes are encouraged.
Teams will travel from business to business to complete tasks and puzzles, gather clues, and unlock hidden (empty) golden kegs around the city. The first team to the finish line will win over $1000 in prizes – including a $100 “tab” at each Participating Business and the value of a keg of beer courtesy of Atlantic Brewing Company.
“We’re immensely pleased with how fun the Keg Hunt has been before, and we’re excited for the challenges this year’s teams will face!” says Spencer Patterson King, the event chair. “And we could not be more appreciative of the returning support of so many folks and businesses in Ellsworth like the Grand, the Ellsworth Public Library, Finn’s, Mortons Moo, Cadillac Mountain Sports, The Ellsworth American, Star 97, Serendib, Airline Brewing, the Abbe Museum, and Mike’s Country Store. It’s also exciting to have the involvement of new businesses like Fogtown Brewing getting in on the festivities. It’s really exciting, and we have some special treats in store for this year’s hunters.”
The finish line party will feature a raffles, snacks, alcohol for sale for thirsty hunters, a special presentation for hunters, and some well-earned gloating. The event will be live-broadcast by media sponsor Star 97.7.
Net proceeds from the event will be donated to The Grand.
