Downtown Scavenger Hunt Returns: Find Otis

27 Jun , 2017  

The Downtown Mansfield Scavenger Hunt is back in July 2017!

From July 1-29, kids can search for a carrousel animal – this year it’s Otis the Ostrich — hidden in downtown businesses and organizations. Prizes can be claimed after finding certain certain numbers of ostriches.

On Saturday, July 29 we’ll have a party at the Carrousel for everyone who found the animal 20 or more times with carrousel rides, cookies, and prizes.
