GUSTAVUS - Locals and out-of-towners alike are invited to come to Gustavus for a town-wide scavenger hunt and open mic July 4. The hunt list will be released July 3 at 10 p.m. All teams must consist of at least one local, one visitor and one non-human. All acts are based on the principles of beautification, goodwill and local knowledge.
The first task will be to make a costume for the parade, or for more points, your own float.
Most of the hunt is a secret until July 3, but a few other possible tasks include the following: Figure out a way your team could auction itself in the school fundraiser. Get permission to kidnap at least one kid for one hour. Recruit a new team member. Get a teenager to hug you.
The hunt ends at 8 p.m. with an open mic, awards ceremony, slideshow and party.
For questions about the roof over your head, go to the Gustavus Visitor Association at www.gustavusak.com or call someone you know who lives in Gustavus.
