Celebrate the City of Falls Church's 75 Year Anniversary through the Then versus Now Scavenger Hunt, a self-lead scavenger hunt through the City taking you back in time to the earliest days of the City of Falls Church after being founded as a city in 1948.
Using the scavenger hunt form on your phone or print out at home, there's 8 pictures and clues from The Little City's past. Follow each clue and snap a picture (with you and your friends!) where these original pictures were taken capturing what the location looks like now.
Collect Your Prize
After finding and photographing the location of all 8 clues, either email your pictures here or come to the community center and show the pictures on your phone or camera! All completed scavenger hunts are entered into a raffle for YOU to be a judge at the 2024 Taste of Falls Church event. There's also an additional small, sweet prize available at the community center while supplies last.
One raffle entry per person, per scavenger hunt.
Families and groups can participate in the scavenger hunt together. Everyone in the group is entered into the raffle and can receive a prize as long as each person participating is pictured in the majority of the photos taken and submitted.
The 75 Year Scavenger Hunt Series is free to play for all ages. This is the sixth 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, Memorial Day Scavenger Hunt in May 2021, and Independence Day Scavenger Hunt in July 2021).
