Bring your digital camera or camera phone and register at the library by 5:30 pm on Tuesday and you will receive a race packet, which will include: the “Amazing Race of Fulton” scavenger hunt and photo challenge clues, pencils, paper, crayons, and a bottle of water for each team member. You will have from 5:30 to 7:00 pm to complete as many of the scavenger hunt questions and photo challenges as possible. This is a foot race, so no vehicles, scooters, bikes, skates, or skateboards, please (Strollers or wagons for little participants are acceptable)! Points will be awarded based on the number of clues that have been completed. Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place.

Stay after the race for pizza and snacks at the library! Come join the fun!!!! Rain date will be Tuesday, July 30th from 5:30-7:00 pm.
