A: All clues and challenges will be downtown Manitowoc within walking distance of the festival grounds. Your ending point will be at the Team Challenge area at Windigo Fest.
Q: Do I need to know Manitowoc well to have a chance at winning?
A: Absolutely not. Your problem-solving ability, collaborative team, ability to use a smart phone, and a good sense of humor are all you need! Don’t be afraid of the locals, they may be able to help you as well!
Q: Can I bring the kids?
A: You could, but this would probably make a better adult team activity.
Q: How long will it take?
A: We can only estimate at this point, depending on your teamwork. You can plan on taking about 2-3 hours. The challenges will take an unknown amount of time depending on skill/luck! We are asking that teams who are taking a while, to just return by 2:00pm.

Q: What do we need to bring?

Q: Will this be a running or super active scavenger hunt?
A: No. There will be some physical challenges (Pallbearer Relay), but the scavenger part is self-paced, but points are awarded for completion times. Some parts of the challenge will simply be solving clues. Other parts you will be 'hunting' for your clue. And in some cases, you'll be completing a challenge.
Q: Should our team dress up?
A: You may notice that most of our community events include costumes! We always welcome spirited teams, so feel free to dress in costume, or in coordinating outfits. Bring on the fun…you’ll be rewarded for this!
