Gig Harbor, Wash. March 21st, 2017 - The Gig Harbor Street Scramble returns to Gig Harbor on Saturday, May 27th beginning at 10am – at a new location for 2017, Donkey Creek Park. This free, family event marks the official kick-off for summer and outdoor fun in Gig Harbor.

The event is FREE, but pre-registration is encouraged for the Street Scramble. The first 200 to pre-register receive a t-shirt. Registration will also be available at the event, but no t-shirt is guaranteed.

The Gig Harbor Street Scramble is a “treasure hunt” through-out the community directing participants to 30 locations on a map. Here is how it works:

• There are 30 check points circled on your map. Each check point has a description such as “sculpture” or “road bend”.

• Visit the check points in any order, on foot or bike. You cannot use a motorized vehicle in the event.

• To prove you were at the checkpoint, answer a question such as “What is the second word on the sculpture plaque”.

• Return to the finish line before your time is up.

• Enjoy refreshments, music, interactive booths and awards!
