EH-Mazing Scavenger Hunt

The EHCC is running a campaign to help inspire members of East Hants and surrounding areas to take advantage of the wonderful shops and services available right here in our own backyards. The concept of the campaign is to have teams of up to 4 people register for a scavenger hunt which will take place from Monday, November 13th to Sunday, November 26th, 2023.

  • Teams will be provided with a list of items to find and photograph at local businesses. (VIEW LIST HERE)
  • The list is made up of 45 gift ideas, and teams will be asked to locate a minimum of 20 items from no fewer than 12 local businesses.
  • One entry will be awarded each item photographed.
  • Teams will upload their photos to the Shop East Hants Facebook page with their team hashtag as well as tag the business the item is located.
  • Winnings will be as follows:
    • 1st prize: $750 in local gift cards
