Ripley's Believe it or not has teamed up this year with 15 local businesses to create the city’s first Halloween themed scavenger hunt. From October 1st – October 31, 15 local businesses will be displaying skeletons that they have designed. These local businesses will be located around the route that the red sightseeing train follows through downtown St. Augustine.
Guests wishing to participate in the tour can simply pick up a red train map from any of the red train stops, and follow the route. Once you and your partner(s) find one of the spooky skeletons you must take a picture with it. The goal is to find and photograph yourself with all 15 skeletons, then post the pictures to www.facebook.com/saintaugustineripleys or www.facebook.com/redtrains.
There is no fee to participate, but your odds greatly improve by taking the red train sightseeing tour. All guests who complete the scavenger hunt will be entered into a grand prize drawing for a weekend getaway in Gatlinburg, Tenn., which will include a $500 gift card for spending money, a $100 gas card, two-night hotel stay and a family pack of tickets to several exciting attractions in Gatlinburg. You will also be entered into a drawing to win 1 of 10 St. Augustine prize packs, which will include tickets to local attractions.
This is just one of many great local events you can experience while staying at Carriage Way Bed & Breakfast in downtown St. Augustine. Contact us today and let us help you plan your next vacation to the nation’s oldest city!
