Join the City of Falls Church Recreation and Parks Department for the Declaration Celebration, an Independence Day themed, one-day Scavenger Hunt!
Using the map provided (PDF), find thirteen Historical Markers throughout the City. A sign featuring one of the thirteen colonies will be placed nearby each Historical Marker. Match all the colonies with their historic site on the Scavenger Hunt Form (PDF), and win a free Declaration Celebration t-shirt (while learning about The Little City's history!)
This is a single-day Scavenger Hunt that you can complete at your own pace between 9:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Turn in your completed Scavenger Hunt form in Cherry Hill Park or the Community Center (or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org) before 6:30 p.m. on July 4 to get your free t-shirt. Afterwards, enjoy free live music in Cherry Hill Park by Sudden M Pac Band from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The Declaration Celebration Scavenger Hunt is free to play for all ages. This is the fifth scavenger hunt the Recreation and Parks Department has hosted since May 2020 (Historic Scavenger Hunt in June 2020, Hallow-scream Hunt in October 2020, Heartfelt Hunt in February 2021, and Memorial Day Scavenger Hunt in May 2021).
