COOKEVILLE – Let the scavenging fun begin.

WestSide Scavenger Hunts – a free activity presented by Cookeville Leisure Services – will be held Jan. 8, Feb. 12 and March 12 in Cookeville’s Historic WestSide Cultural District.

“I really enjoy the scavenger hunts because they offer an opportunity for participants to explore the ever-changing and growing WestSide and possibly win a big prize basket,” Ashley McKee, Cookeville museums education specialist, said. “It’s super easy and super fun.”

Entry forms with tiny picture clues may be picked up on scavenger hunt days between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. at the Cookeville Depot Museum, 116 W. Broad St. The goal is to find the pictured objects in and around participating WestSide businesses and replicate each image with a cell phone camera. Completed forms will be entered in a drawing for a prize basket filled with items from sponsoring businesses.

“Some people think the first person to turn in the entry form gets the prize, but that’s not the case,” McKee said. “I would rather participants think of it like a puzzle. I want them to search around the WestSide, enjoy lunch, grab a cup of coffee and get a gift for themselves or others from one of the great merchants. It’s a day to explore on your own time.”

Each month’s scavenger hunt is unique, with different sets of clues leading to different locations.

Cookeville’s WestSide includes numerous specialty shops, unique eateries, antique stores, art studios and more, all within walking distance of the Cookeville Depot Museum. Colorful murals, restored facades and signs with historic photos enhance the self-guided experience.
