Zombie Outbreak Cure Scavenger Hunt

2 – 6 pm

The annual zombie outbreak is due to hit the Audubon Park Garden District. Zombies will be filling the streets from 6 – 10 pm and we need your help beforehand!

We have learned that there may be a cure for the outbreak.

Join the Scavenger Hunt!

The hunt starts at 2 pm. Meet in front of Blue Bird Bake Shop for your first clue. You will have to decipher the clue and travel to the next location to continue. Everyone who buys a ticket will receive a FREE ticket to our next Sip + Stroll in November. Complete the hunt and enter to win great prizes, including zombie swag.

The cost to participate in the hunt is  $10 for the first person and $6 for each additional teammate. Teams are not required, but more brain power can be a good thing. Don’t miss this clever game!
