Hundreds are participating in the Great Tehachapi Scavenger Hunt


May 11, 2024


This is an example of the photos participants are sending in when they find a hidden location. If you're not a selfie person, you can use an icon or team mascot instead.

You may be noticing residents all over town riddling out clues and scouring the area in the hopes of finding the perfect location.

They are peeking their heads in doors, asking odd questions and many are working in groups. They are avid participants in the Great Tehachapi Scavenger Hunt, taking place on Instagram!

Since the hunt started on May 1, hundreds of citizens have been exploring the area and happily finding hidden locations. They are all in competition in the hopes of being the winner of the grand $1,000 prize. The second prize winner or team will receive $500 and the third place will win $250. This event is sponsored by Knight Building Systems. Other prizes are coming in from participating businesses, as well. It's not too late to join the fun. You can join as late as May 30, but you'll have a full fun day ahead of solving more than 15 clues and finding those locations. This event is a fun way to promote many businesses and organizations in our wonderful town and encourage everyone to enjoy the spring and do a little exploration.

Head over to Instagram, follow @chambertehachapi. You'll find a post pinned to the upper left corner of the channel that describes the challenge. Like that post, tag five friends then you'll be sent the rules and the first clue in your Instagram messages. Once you riddle out the clue and find the location, take a selfie or a picture that proves you did the work and send it in a message. Once all the locations have been found at the end of the month, we hope everyone will share their adventures on their channels and give some love to the participating businesses.

May the hunt be in your favor!
