On Sept. 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Historic Littleton Inc. presents the annual “Historic Littleton Scavenger Hunt” to promote downtown Littleton’s remarkable historic buildings, filled with shopping and dining opportunities.

Scavengers will hunt for clues hidden in vintage photos located in some (marked) shops and for architectural details on buildings. Prizes include a $500 grand prize, $300 second prize, $150 third prize and additional prizes from merchants. The scavenger hunt begins and ends at Bega Park on the east end of Main Street, where printed ballots can be picked up from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Entry is free and the ballot is suitable for adults and school-age children. Ballots must be returned by 2:30 p.m. and winners must be present for the drawing.

At 3 p.m., scavengers are invited to enjoy music by the Rootin’ Tootin’ Dixieland Band, and the drawing will be held after final checks for correct answers (at 3:30 p.m.) Food and drink will be available for purchase.

Historic Littleton Inc. is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to preserving the historical and architectural heritage of greater Littleton.
